Some Answers To Your Negotiation Questions

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

For anyone missing their daily dose of lockout-inspired sarcasm, the Answerman returns for a fresh look at a stale topic, Day 19 of a bun fight that shows no sign of ending in an up-with-people way:

Q: So the NHL cancelled 82 games today. Does that move the needle on negotiations in any way, shape or form?

A: None. It’s a sideshow we’ll see every two weeks, an opportunity for NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly to express his regret at the slow pace of negotiations. Fact is, from here on in, the cancellations mean nothing. If some miraculous solution were presented tomorrow, they’d find a way of tagging the lost games onto the end of the schedule, even if they risked a July finish. Seasons don’t matter here. Only dollars do.
