NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly and players' association special counsel Steve Fehr met for long stretches of Saturday in an undisclosed location, marking the first time the sides had gotten together for talks in more than two weeks.
``We had a series of meetings over the course of the day and had a good, frank discussion on the most important issues separating us,'' Daly told The Associated Press in an email Sunday morning. ``We plan to meet again early in the week.''
Daly and Fehr hadn't met since Oct. 18 when both sides rejected offers, but a series of phone conversations this week did enough to produce a new round of talks.
