NHLPA Vote Underway

via CP,
NHL players have begun voting on the league's proposed new labour agreement. Voting began around 10 a.m. EDT and was expected to take several hours. Some 225 players are in Toronto for the vote, with the other 500 or so casting their ballots electronically. The NHLPA meeting started Wednesday. Talks went well into the night, with players still milling about with each other well past 1 a.m. Thursday. The players resumed discussions at 8:30 a.m. Thursday's meeting is due to wrap up following lunch, followed by an afternoon news conference with both NHLPA boss Bob Goodenow and commissioner Gary Bettman. The league is due to ratify the agreement Friday in New York.
