NHL Lockout: No Updates Seem Imminent

The NHL lockout has officially begun and it doesn't appear that the two sides are anywhere closer to resolving their differences. Neither the NHL nor the NHL Players' Association has committed to face-to-face negotiations with the other side.

"I'm sure we will remain in contact," NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said. "But there are no negotiations planned or scheduled at this point."

Both sides have issued statements to fans, but neither appears ready to budge on the issues that are keeping a new collective bargaining agreement from being reached. The main issue remains the division of hockey-related revenue, roughly a $3.3 billion figure.

The league could begin cancelling preseason games as early as this week and the regular season start date of Oct. 11 is already in danger. Season ticket holders for Wild games have already been told that they will be reimbursed with interest for any games that are missed.
