The Minnesota Wild are preparing for training camps, but the chance that the camps actually open across the NHL as scheduled is growing less likely by the day, the Star Tribune reports. Labor negotiations between the NHL and the NHL Players' Association ended abruptly Friday. No future talks have been scheduled, and with the collective bargaining agreement set to expire in 12 days, a second lockout in eight years appears inevitable.
The NHL's collective bargaining agreement expires September 15th, and a wide gap still separates the NHL and NHL Players' Association. While discussions are ongoing, Minnesota Wild player representative Darrell Powe says they "need to get a system in place that works for everyone."
The NHL put a new proposal in front of the NHL Players' Association on Tuesday in hopes of avoiding a possible lockout. Players' association president Donald Fehr says he doesn't feel "better or worse" about the newest offer. Wild star Zach Parise says the players are "ready to play."
Michael Russo of the Star Tribune points out that more than 240 players who played in the 2003-04 NHL season never played again after a lockout cancelled the entire 2004-05 season. The current lockout could be end of the line for a number of Wild players, and maybe the end of Matt Cullen's career.
The NHL lockout has already wiped out the first two weeks of the regular season, and more games could be cancelled soon unless a resolution is reached. The good news is that labor negotiations will resume Tuesday, with the main issue - hockey related revenue - being discussed.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman offers the players a new deal to end the lockout. He wants a 50-50 hockey-related revenue split to ensure a full 82-game season.
