NHL, players' association set to meet Wednesday morning

The NHL Players' Association, after being asked by the NHL for a complete proposal Monday night, is holding internal meetings today in New York. The sides in the labor battle are set to meet again at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

It's not clear whether the union will submit a full offer, though it would be a wise idea.

"We are considering a proposal, but nothing is definite," Blackhawks defenseman and former Sabre Steve Montador told the Chicago Tribune today in an email. "Time is ticking more now than ever, but we're not at a point where the season would be cancelled -- at least in my opinion. For now, it's a continued reserved optimism."
