NHL labor talks to resume Tuesday

The NHL and NHLPA will resume meeting on Tuesday morning in New York City, according to a report from the Associated Press. The two sides met for three straight days over the weekend, but the talks were concerning smaller issues, such as what defines "hockey related revenue" and player safety. The biggest issue between the two sides, how to split revenue between the roughly $3 billion in revenue between the league and players, remains unsolved. Tuesday is the only day that meetings are scheduled this week.

The NHL locked out the players on Sep. 15th, when the previous collective bargaining agreement expired. The entire preseason has been cancelled, and it's expected that the start of the regular season will be delayed by the league sometime this week. The season is currently scheduled to start on Oct. 11th.

Two United States senators, both from New Jersey, have sent NHL commissioner Gary Bettman a letter, urging him to resolve the lockout as soon as possible to avoid Congressional intervention. Congress as jurisdiction over professional sports leagues, as they fall into the category of "interstate commerce."
