The sides didn't talk Sunday, the 92nd day of a lockout that is threatening to wipe out an entire NHL season for the second time in nine years.
NHL players started voting Sunday on whether to have their union give up collective bargaining rights, a ``disclaimer of interest'' that could be a precursor to an antitrust suit.
