NHL executives left Thursday's meeting in Toronto very disappointed.
If Fehr did come back with three offers, all off their original offer over the summer, blame the lack of progress on him.— Joe Fortunato (@BlueshirtBanter) October 18, 2012
Thursday's meetings, according to Bettman, were a "step backward."
"I am to say the least totally disappointed," he said.
Bettman said he isn't sure what the next step in these negotiations even is, following today's meetings. The NHL's proposal would've saved an 82-game season and the league publicly released its plan.
The plan included a 50-50 split in hockey related revenue.
NHL players' union head Donald Fehr met with players afterward to formulate the union's response. In a letter to players and agents, he said the management plan would cost his members more than $1.6 billion over six years.
Whatever changes he made, the league wasn't pleased which would lead one to believe this lockout will go on, much deeper into the year. Expect the cancelation of the Winter Classic at the current rate of these negotiations.
