NHL and NHLPA to resume talks!

According to this breaking news, the NHL and the NHLPA will resume talks on Wednesday.

NHLPA president Trevor Linden made the request Monday, asking for a smaller

gathering, according to a source. Linden, NHLPA senior director Ted Saskin and

outside counsel John McCambridge will represent the players while the league

will have Calgary Flames part-owner Harley Hotchkiss, NHL executive

vice-president and chief legal officer Bill Daly and outside counsel Bob

Batterman. A source indicated no proposals would be made from any side, but

rather the meeting is an attempt to kick-start talks.

Any predictions on the outcome? My guess is that many of the players and owners see the handwriting on the empty bank accounts, to mix a metaphor.
