NHLPA: “The players are willing to continue to negotiate”

7 Comments

The owners and the NHLPA don’t currently have a plan to meet again after CBA talks hit a wall, but the players are still shooting for PR victories.

Agent Allan Walsh passes along this quote from the NHLPA.

On face value, this statement makes it look like the NHLPA would still like to hold more meetings – or at least keep the lines of communication open.

Henrik Zetterberg seems to echo such statements in this story by Ansar Khan (via Walsh).

“There’s no two-way street in their proposal,” Zetterberg said. “We’re trying to find a way to partner up with them. We have problems in the league. We have to find a solution, players and the league together, and both help out.”

“We don’t want to get locked out again. For players and fans, ’04 was no fun. And here we are again.”
