NEWS: NHL / NHLPA Meeting Tonight

Despite Gary Bettman’s suggestion last week that the sides take a two week break, the league and the players will meet tonight in NYC.  Per TSN:

NEW YORK – The NHL and NHL Players’ Association are set to get back to the bargaining table.

A large group is expected when the sides resume negotiations later Monday.

A handful of owners, general managers and players are scheduled to join the key negotiators for the session.

The sides will be meeting for the first time since Nov. 11, when talks broke off after the fifth formal session in six days.
