NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL and the players' association are still talking, but have no plans yet to return to the bargaining table.
For the second straight day, representatives on both sides of the lockout had telephone conversations on Sunday. None of those talks have yet led to concrete negotiations that could lead to a collective bargaining agreement and get the delayed hockey season going.
``We had a conference call today to answer some of their questions,'' NHL deputy commissioner told The Associated Press in an email. ``No bargaining. And no bargaining meetings scheduled.''
Daly and NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr also had discussions on Saturday. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and union executive director Donald Fehr didn't take part in Sunday's conference call, Daly said.
The lockout entered its 36th day on Sunday. All games through Nov. 1 have been canceled by the NHL, and the league says a deal must be reached by Thursday for a full 82-game season.
