NHL, players’ association get no closer after talks

NEW YORK — Five hours of talks in two sessions between the NHL and the players’ association did little to move the sides closer to a deal in the nearly one-month lockout.

The NHL’s top two executives — Commissioner Gary Bettman and Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly — met with the NHLPA’s main negotiators — executive director Donald Fehr and special counsel Steve Fehr — for nearly an hour to assess where the sides were on Day 25 of the NHL lockout, but there were no concrete discussions on the troublesome core economic issues preventing a deal.

A four-hour session that stretched into evening centered on player health and safety issues along with other miscellaneous legal topics.
