nhl- CBA talks continue Today

via TSN, Small group labour talks between the National Hockey League and NHL Players' Association ended late Tuesday night and resume Wednesday in New York with a larger group meeting. Both sides have carried over the momentum from last week when 34 hours of talks were described as 'progressive' from both sides. There are several issues to iron out, but sources in both camps believe there's a chance a deal could be done before July. Still, both sides also concede there are potential pitfalls that could prevent an agreement from being reached.
