The NHL and NHLPA have found some sort of common ground in the past week, as the two sides continue to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement — but not enough for an NHL season to begin anytime soon.
After bargaining talks soured Friday between the owners and the players union, representatives from both sides met for an informal lunch Saturday.
Sportsnet’s Michael Grange said the two sides could meet again Sunday. Whether that meeting happens or produces positive results is in the air, but at least the owners and players are talking, which is a lot more than could be said a week ago.
