NHL lockout meeting delayed; NHLPA holds conference calls while readying counter proposal

TORONTO -- The meeting between the NHL and NHL Players' Association, scheduled to begin at 1 p.m., has been pushed back at least 90 minutes while the union readies its counterproposal.

The NHLPA held conference calls with its executive and negotiating committees today, pushing back the proceedings.

The union is expected to deliver a response to the 50-50 proposal made by the league Tuesday. There are 18 players scheduled to sit it on the negotiations, including Sabres defenseman Robyn Regehr and Penguins captain Sidney Crosby.

The league's group will include, among others, Commissioner Gary Bettman and Bruins owner and Buffalo native Jeremy Jacobs.
