Lockout Makes It Hard to Get Excited About Whale Camp

It's hard to get excited about this…

…when NHL Deputy Comissioner Bill Daly says there was "no progress" during today's meeting between the NHL and NHLPA on the definition of hockey related revenue and things aren't "overly encouraging." He then added this for good measure (via Pro Hockey Talk)…

“Unless [the players] show some willingness to compromise, I don’t know how we get this done.”

To which NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr responded (via ESPN)…

"One of the things I think that everybody needs to understand is that the definition of 'no progress' that comes out of the NHL offices seems to be 'they didn't give us what they want yet. Progress is giving them what they want. It's not finding a way to come to a mutually-acceptable understanding."

While Fehr is expected to speak with Gary Bettman on the phone tonight, no further meetings have been planned.

….becoming difficult to stay positive when these guys aren't even in the same ballpark when it comes to hockey related revenue.

Ok, back to some fun stuff. Here's interviews of Marek Hrivik and Christian Thomas from today's scrimmage (via Blueshirts United)…
