NHL, NHLPA holding informal meetings


As rumored yesterday, the NHL and NHLPA are indeed holding informal meetings today in New York.

There’s no set agenda and no new proposals are expected to be presented, according to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, but at the very least, the lines of communication will be open.

The current CBA expires Sept. 15 (next Saturday), at which point the owners are expected to lock out the players.
