NHL, players' association again fail to make progress with mediators

Once again, nothing is happening.

The NHL and its players' association met with Federal mediators today in New Jersey in an attempt to end the lockout and start the season. And, as you might have guessed ...

"There's nothing new to report," NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly told reporters. "We don't have a conclusion to the process."

"I can't tell you that any progress was made," NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr said. "All I'm going to say is that there wasn't any change in position."

There are no further meetings scheduled.
