The meetings between the players and owners end just before 1 am Eastern time. Ron Hainsey did the speaking for the NHLPA and wowed the crowd of reporters with:
"We had a series of meetings today, very candid discussion, and we plan on meeting again tomorrow."
Bill Daly was next up for the NHL and was a little less vague. He stated that there was good, candid dialogue, but there are critical open issues between the parties.
With that, Day 2 of the meetings ended without much information on where the two sides are at or how close they may be to an agreement.
