At the risk of getting everyone’s hopes up, TSN’s Darren Dreger is reporting that NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly and NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr “talked extensively” on the phone Tuesday.

According to Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the talks may have even qualified as “light negotiations.”

It’s been reported that the NHL will announce the cancelation of the Winter Classic on Thursday or Friday; however, we suppose there’s an outside shot that CBA progress could put an announcement on hold.
