NHL lockout talks are expected to resume Tuesday following a two hour meeting on Monday. The news of another meeting is positive, but it isn't keeping players from ripping commissioner Gary Bettman and NHL Players' Association executive director Donald Fehr.

Florida Panthers forward Kris Versteeg said this to a Canadian radio station: "You've got to look for the cancers and you've got to cut out the cancers." Versteeg was referring to Bettman and NHL executive Bill Daly.

A report from NHL.com says Fehr was hoping to discuss everything on player contracting issues, but the NHL was "unwilling" to do so.
