Federal mediators fail, NHL still deep in lockout

The NHL and NHL Players' Association's hopes of federal mediation helping solve the lockout didn't work. As Michael Russo of the Star Tribune put it, it was a "complete and utter failure."

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly issued a statement, saying the mediators found that both sides remain far apart, "and that no progress toward a resolution could be made through further mediation at this point in time."

The lack of progress prompted NHL commissioner Gary Bettman to suggest that the owners and players meet face-to-face -- and only the owners and players. The idea would remove Bettman, NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr, and employees working for them.
