Over the course of the last few days, the NHL and NHLPA have been meeting in a “secret location” (New York) discussing the NHL Lockout, and presumably, working on ways to get the season going again.

After Thursday’s meeting, Donald Fehr, Executive Director of the NHLPA, sent this memo to the players:

“Today, we met with the NHL off and on over several hours. A number of matters were discussed, including our proposal for a new pension plan, revenue sharing, the players’ share and salary cap issues, and the owners’ “make whole” concept.

No new proposals were exchanged on pension issues, but we will discuss this issue again tomorrow (Friday). We did receive a proposal on revenue sharing in response to the proposal we made this week, but this subject still needs considerable work.”
