There has been very little contact this week between the sides. Daly and Fehr held a conversation Saturday, the 98th day of the lockout that is threatening to wipe out the entire hockey season.

All games through Jan. 14 have already been called off, and if a new collective bargaining agreement isn't reached by then, the remainder of the schedule could be canceled, too. So far, 625 games - more than 50 percent of the schedule - have been wiped out, along with the Winter Classic and the All-Star game.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says he doesn't want a season shorter than 48 games per team, the amount played after a lockout ended in 1995. The full 2004-05 season was lost to a lockout.
