NHL lockout: talks to resume Friday, according to report

Discussions on a new NHL collective bargaining agreement could start again on Friday. According to what sources have told ESPN's Pierre LeBrun, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly and NHLPA counsel Steve Fehr met in Toronto Tuesday to schedule the new round of talks.

Fehr and Daly met on Monday, but did not schedule more negotiations. The new round of talks will be held in New York City, and are expected to begin with non-economic issues.

Little progress has been made in the NHL labor talks since players were officially locked out on Sept. 16. That has fans frustrated, as well as Chicago Blackhawks players like Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews looking for places overseas where hockey is being played, for pay.

Preseason games through Sept. 30 have already been canceled. Much like 2004-05, it's believed the tenor and quality of this week's talks might very well determine how long this lockout lasts.
