Federal Mediation between the NHL and NHLPA concluded yesterday. It didn't go well. No ground was made.
"I'm really surprised federal mediation didn't work," said no one ever.
Anyways here's Bill Daly's response:
NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly issued the following statement regarding the two days of meetings that concluded today with representatives of the NHL Players’ Association under the auspices of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service:
"Today, we concluded two days of mediation with FMCS mediators and representatives of the NHL Players' Association. After spending several hours with both sides over two days, the presiding mediators concluded that the parties remained far apart, and that no progress toward a resolution could be made through further mediation at this point in time. We are disappointed that the mediation process was not successful."
After the jump, our official response…
And here's our official responses that there's still no fucking new CBA:
The NHL is awful. Fuck the NHL.
And apparently fuck NHL13. Greg didn't take to losing last night.
