Eighteen players arrive in New York, NHLPA opts to send all (including Miller) into meeting with owners

Ryan Miller didn't need to worry about getting picked for today's meeting with the NHL. The players' association is sending in everyone.

Eighteen players, including the Sabres' goaltender, have traveled to New York for resumption of negotiations between the league and the NHLPA. Six owners will be at the table, and it was believed they'd be joined by a half-dozen players. The union announced this afternoon that all 18 who traveled will attend the meeting, which is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.

The players who will be in the negotiations are: Craig Adams, David Backes, Michael Cammalleri, Sidney Crosby, B.J. Crombeen, Mathieu Darche, Shane Doan, Ron Hainsey, Shawn Horcoff, Jamal Mayers, Manny Malhotra, Andy McDonald, Miller, George Parros, Brad Richards, Martin St. Louis, Jonathan Toews and Kevin Westgarth.

Owners Ronald Burkle of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Mark Chipman of the Winnipeg Jets, Jeffery Vinik of the Tampa Bay Lightning and Larry Tanenbaum of the Toronto Maple Leafs will join regular league negotiators Jeremy Jacobs of the Boston Bruins and Murray Edwards of the Calgary Flames at the table.
