NHL talks continue

The NHL and Players Association resumed collective bargaining
yesterday in Manhattan and will continue today and tomorrow.
As the sides are apparently working toward a deal, a person close to
the situation said that while it is possible an agreement could be
done this month, it could go beyond June.
"It could go longer just in terms of the enormous amount of work to
be done and the drafting of a CBA," the person said, "which must and
will be done before a deal is announced."
