NHL Collective Bargaining talks will resume today as the players and the owners plan face to face meetings in New York. The meetings were schedculed after the NHLPA spent the weekend reviewing the league's latest 288-page proposal.
The NHLPA met internally on Sunday in New York after it wrapped up information sessions earlier in the day involving the Owners' latest CBA proposal.
The league and players also spent most of Saturday in conference calls and discussions regarding the offer that the league presented on Thursday.
According to TSN's Aaron Ward lawyers and financial staff representing both sides met face-to-face on Sunday. They were involved in the review and clarification of the offer.
The NHL and the Players' Association will be meeting in person for the first time since they met with federal mediators on Dec. 12-13.
The lockout is in its 106th day. The league would like to have an agreement in place no later than January 11 with training camps to open the following day and the season set to start on January 19. The season needs to start by that date to accommodate a 48-game regular season which would see playoffs end in late June.
