NHL players, owners return to the bargaining table
MANILA, Philippines – The National Hockey League (NHL) players and owners have returned to the bargaining table in New York in a bid to end their labor dispute.
At stake is how to divide $3.3 billion in annual revenue.
Players have been locked out since mid-September and the league has cancelled games through January 14 – more than 50% of the regular season which was scheduled to start in October.
The dispute is the NHL’s fourth work stoppage in 20 years, and the first since a lockout forced cancellation of the entire 2004-2005 season. -- Mornings @ ANC, January 2, 2013
