Report- Back At The Negotiating Table Later This Week?

from Katie Strang of ESPN New York,

 With Thursday's deadline looming and a full 82-game season hanging in the balance, the NHL and NHLPA have not made any plans to meet again following last week's proposal-swapping debacle.

Although one source with knowledge of negotiations told ESPNNewYork.com that talks are likely to resume at some point this week, no meeting had been scheduled as of late Monday afternoon.

Both NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr and NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly spoke over the weekend, but did not mark the calendar for a formal bargaining session. According to a source briefed on the conversation, the league and the union had a conference call to seek clarification on hockey-related revenue issues, but did not resume negotiations.

When will the two sides meet next?

"Don't know," Daly told ESPNNewYork.com via email. "We will see what happens in the next couple of days."
