Could there be an NHL season after all?
A player close to the talks who asked to remain anonymous told The Hockey News the two sides have agreed to a deal in principle that features a $45-million salary cap. Asked if there was any way a deal won’t get done, the player said,
“not that I can see. I couldn’t possibly imagine the idea that somebody is going to try to make a name for themselves in the last minute here.”
More from ESPN:
The NHL and the players’ association restarted talks Saturday at 9 a.m. ET at an undisclosed location in New York after the league requested the sides get together again.
However, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and NHLPA executive director Bob Goodenow were not participating in the negotiations.
Hopefully this goes somewhere.
