Smoke ’em if you got ’em: NHL-NHLPA meeting delayed


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.
