NHL and players hold separate meetings
NEW YORK (AP) -- The NHL board of governors made two things quite clear Tuesday: There will be hockey in the fall and commissioner Gary Bettman will still be in charge.
On a day when players regrouped in Toronto and executives from all 30 teams gathered in New York, both sides issued stern declarations that there is unity in the ranks.
Bettman said he plans to invite the players' association back to the bargaining table soon, but wouldn't reveal if he will present a new proposal.
If a deal can't be reached through negotiation, the league plans to explore all options -- including using replacement players next season.
"We discussed a variety of options and I don't want to focus on any one because it would seriously be misconstrued and be potentially inflammatory," Bettman said. "The fact is there are lots of options.
"We discussed everything. But again, everybody's first and primary focus is to make a deal with the union as quickly as possible."
There might be some differences in opinion among the players and the owners, but no cracks in the foundation even though the NHL recently became the first major North American sports league to lose an entire season to a labor dispute.
