Players, owners to meet Tuesday; no Dolan, says the NHL

(Just wondering, was Jim Dolan, who according to Larry Brooks, wanted to be involved, snubbed by the NHL? Does NHL HQ worry that he might work toward some middle ground and try to get this thing settled? That he’s not hawkish enough, or small-market enough, or is it just because the Lockout Commissioner doesn’t like him?)

From the NHLPA:

Statement from Don Fehr, NHLPA Executive Director regarding Players & Owners meeting:

TORONTO (December 2, 2012): Don Fehr, NHLPA Executive Director issued the following statement this evening regarding a meeting between Owners and Players later this week:

“The NHLPA has agreed to a meeting on Tuesday in New York that should facilitate dialogue between Players and Owners.  Neither the Commissioner nor I will be present, although each side will have a limited number of staff or counsel present.

There will be Owners attending this meeting who have not previously done so, which is encouraging and which we welcome.  We hope that this meeting will be constructive and lead to a dialogue that will help us find a way to reach an agreement.”
