CBA Talks Heat Up

from Katie Strang of ESPN New York,

With the issue of supplementary discipline a large part of the Wednesday’s agenda, talks grew increasingly contentious between the NHL and NHL Players’ Association during Day 2 of labor negotiations.

Mathieu Schneider, special assistant to NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr, wouldn’t go so far as to characterize the negotiations as “adversarial,” but he did concede that there were some tense moments between the two camps.

“At times there have been heated exchanges,” Schneider said. “There’s definitely strong opinions on both sides, especially when it comes to supplementary discipline, but I wouldn’t describe it as adversarial. Not at all.”

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly similarly downplayed the tension and described the discussions as “lively.”

“I wouldn’t characterize it as tense, I really wouldn’t,” Daly said.
