nhl- Meeting again Today

via Sportsnet, It won't be a lack of effort that keeps the NHL and its players from reaching a new deal.
Bill Daly and Ted Saskin met for several hours on Thursday in New York and will resume CBA discussions early Friday morning. (NHL lawyer, Batterman and NHLPA lawyer, McCambridge also took part and will be in the discussion on Friday.)
After weeks of inactivity during the beginning of the labour dispute, the two sides have met with relative regularity since the season was cancelled in February. A rumour has surfaced of late pointing to the possibility of a July 1 agreement, which would be fitting for all Canadian hockey fans considering the date is also Canada Day.
