Associated Press Negotiations aimed at ending the NHL’s lockout will resume this morning at the NHL office, the players’ association said in a statement Tuesday. Before Monday night’s 90-minute bargaining session, it had been eight days since the sides got together. Whether the players’ association will bring a new complete proposal, as requested by the NHL on Monday, to the next round of talks remained uncertain. But the union huddled for internal conversations after negotiations ended, and continued talking on Tuesday — pushing further bargaining back a day. “It looks like [today],” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in an email. “No other details at this point.” The lockout entered its 66th day Tuesday and already has wiped out 327 games. More cancellations could be coming soon without a new deal. While neither side offered much insight following Monday’s talks, there didn’t seem to be any of the anger that reportedly existed when the previous negotiations ended a week earlier. Both sides looked forward to when they would reconvene to try to reach the elusive deal that would end the lockout that has already shortened the season and threatens to scrap it completely. The prevailing question is when will one side say something the other really wants to hear. There hasn’t been any kind of breakthrough to pave the way to a new collective-bargaining agreement.
