The National Hockey League will once again be addressing the lockout situation in New York on Tuesday. On September 15th NHL owners locked out players after they were unable to close a deal on a new agreement.
Both sides will come together to discuss the issue of hockey revenue in a conversation that began during meetings over the course of three days last week; however the subject of how league revenue is to be split is not expected to be a topic of conversation.
A letter was drafted by two New Jersey Senators, Robert Menendez and Frank Lautenberg, and delivered to Commissioner Gary Bettman and the NHL Players' Association Executive Director Donald Fehr. They more or less requested that they come to an agreement and settle these issues.
'I believe in my heart, maybe because I'm such a big hockey fan, that they will be playing by Jan. 1,' said Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky. 'I think the hard part of their deal was the last negotiations (in 2004) of players agreeing to a salary cap.'
The regular season of NHL games kicks off on October 11th but there are reports that the league is on the verge of cancelling the first round of games under the circumstances.
