NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL has rejected the players' latest offer for a labor deal, and negotiations have broken off at least until the weekend.
Donald Fehr made two separate appearances Thursday night in front of a large throng of reporters just moments apart after talks with the league ended. Initially, Fehr said he believed the sides had agreements on some key issues, but he returned soon after to say NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly left a voicemail saying that the players' offer wasn't good enough.
The voicemail, left for union special counsel Steve Fehr, stated that ``some things or everything'' the league has offered is now off the table, according to Donald Fehr, who added that this is not a positive development.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman was expected to speak later Thursday, the 82nd day of the lockout. Bettman was not part of the one-hour meeting earlier in the day.
