9 Comments

For those hockey fans holding their breath in anticipation of the NHLPA’s response to the NHL, try not to pass out, because today’s meeting has been pushed back until 2:30 p.m. ET at the earliest.

According ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, the union had a conference call with its executive board and negotiating committee, causing the delay.

The players are still expected to present an offer today, reports Chris Johnston of the Canadian Press.
