Fehr, Daly present updates on radio

While the NHL and NHLPA had no plans to talk to each otheron Wednesday, they were taking to Canadian radio stations en masse. And at leastone interview with NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly ended on an intriguingnote.Daly did two interviews on Wednesday. Thefirst was with Sportsnet 590 The Fan. But it was the second, when Dalytalked with Hockey Night in Canada, that left ears perked.ElliotteFriedman wrapped up the interview by posing to Daly, yes or no, do we have aseason? Daly, without hesitation, said yes.Now take that for what it is. He could have meant this season.He could have meant well have hockey at some point, but not necessarily thisparticular season. And keep in mind Friedman wasnt going to accept thephrases, I hope so and I want to believe to the question.Still, there it is. Perhaps Daly is indeed talking aboutthis season, that the two sides will realize enough is enough and its time toget back to the table. If so, they might want to hurry because we are trulyreaching the breaking point. Daly said on both interviews that there willlikely be more game cancellations before the end of the week. He added that, inorder to get that 48-game season that the league considers the minimum to play,theyd have to start playing by mid-January.Dalys two interviews followed NHLPA executive directorDonald Fehr, whospoke on The Jeff Blair Show on Sportsnet 590 this morning. Players arecurrently voting on whether to give the NHLPA executive board the power to filea disclaimer of interest and dissolve the union. Fehr said it is not a tactic.If players decide that they dont want to be a union, therewont be a union. Well be living in different world. Owners will have tocomply with anti-trust laws and individual players will have whatever ritesthat they would have. If the players association continues, it would continueas a trade association. It wouldnt be representing the players in connectionwith negotiations.
