After two days of labor talks ended without an agreement, the NHL and NHLPA have no further meetings scheduled.
The two sessions dealt with secondary issues like free agency and drug testing, and not much progress was made in those areas, according to an ESPNNewYok.com report. There were no discussion on economic issues, and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr also didn't meet.
The union wanted to meet Friday, but the league cited scheduling conflicts.
"Until we're tackling the major issues, I'm not sure what the urgency is to meet on a 24/7 basis," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told ESPNNewYork.com.
