nhl- Negotiating Major Issues

via Sportsnet, The NHL and NHLPA intend to invest the rest of this week to reaching an end to the lockout and sources tell Sportsnet the two sides are still heavily negotiating the “major issues.”
While it remains true the lawyers involved have been combing through the process every step of the way, a very intense legal analysis will take place once an agreement has been reached.
Neither the league nor the union is in a position to declare a time frame, but July 1 continues to be, perhaps, a lofty target.
All affected by this lockout are hanging onto hope that the negotiations have been reduced to a day-by-day countdown. However, there is virtually no chance of a resolution before next week.
