Sports log: NHL, players back to bargaining table


The NHL and the NHL Players Association negotiated Saturday for the first time since Oct. 18. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly and NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr agreed to meet at a secret location. The two had been talking by phone during the week and found enough common ground to meet. The hope of a full season being played is already gone, and if progress isn’t made soon, the NHL could be looking at its second lost campaign since 2004; 327 games have been canceled, including the Winter Classic. In its most recent proposal, the NHL offered the union a 50-50 split of hockey-related revenue, which exceeded $3 billion last season, but that was rejected. The players responded with three offers that went nowhere.
