NHL, NHLPA Still Far Apart in Talks Due to Salary Cap, Pension, Escrow (Video)


While it’s encouraging that the NHL and NHLPA are meeting face to face again, a resolution to the league’s lockout could still be a ways off.

John Shannon of Sportsnet told Adam Pellerin and Jamie Erdahl on NESN Daily that it could be days or weeks before the NHL lockout comes to an end, and that’s dependent on the two sides reaching an agreement on some major issues.

Shannon said the NHL and NHLPA still have to agree on a salary cap — where they’re currently $10 million apart — pension and escrow. The two sides are expected to meet again on Wednesday.

Watch the video above to hear all of Shannon’s thoughts on when the NHL lockout could come to an end.
