NHL Lockout: League, NHLPA Talks Remain Unscheduled

We're now in the sixth day of latest NHL lockout -- and there is no end on the horizon. Despite the fact that the league has already cancelled all September preseason games, there are no meetings scheduled between the league and the NHLPA, something that is both baffling and frustrating to fans of the sport.

To make matters worse, Friday was supposed to be a joyous day for NHL fans.

NHL training camps were scheduled to open on Friday; that obviously won't happen. Also not happening anytime soon: formal CBA talks as the two sides have nothing planned.

It's both amazing and unfortunate that we've already reached this point. The sport of hockey is coming off of an excellent 2010 Olympics, and have followed it up with Stanley Cup finals featuring some of the largest markets in the United States and Canada (Chicago/Philadelphia, Boston/Vancouver, New Jersey/Los Angeles).

The aforementioned CBS report also states that the league could cancel the entire preseason slate of games by Tuesday.

Hopefully, both sides come to their senses and begin negotiating -- and negotiating quickly.
