The dynamic of having owners and players at the bargaining table without NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and union leader Donald Fehr also appears to have lost some of his luster. It wasn't immediately known who was in attendance for the meeting that began shortly after 5 p.m., but some owners who sat in on Tuesday and Wednesday have left.
