NHL Lockout: No Progress On Day 2

The NHL officially locked its players out on Sunday, Sept. 16, when the collective bargaining agreement between the league and the NHLPA expired.

Unfortunately for hockey fans, the lockout hasn't created any urgency between the two sides to negotiate -- not yet, at least.

SI.com reported Monday that there has been no progress made on the second day of the lockout, and that talks remain unscheduled.

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr have spoken informally since the lockout began, and may do so again on Tuesday. But nothing official will resume until at least Wednesday between Commissioner Gary Bettman and NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr.

The two sides haven't met for face-to-face talks since last Wednesday.

Over the weekend, the league issued a statement to fans on its website that it was "committed to negotiating around the clock to reach a new CBA that is fair to the players and to the 30 NHL teams."

The Dallas Stars are still scheduled to open up the 2012-'13 season on the road in Phoenix on Oct. 13. If a deal isn't consummated in the immediate future, the league will be forced to start cancelling games.
