Labour negotiations between the NHL and the locked-out players' association may resume Tuesday after a four-day break.
The location and the agenda have yet to be determined. The sides held two days of talks this week in New York without discussion of hockey-related revenue — the core economic issue that has prevented the NHL regular season from starting on time.
"Nothing firm. There is a potential for Tuesday," NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said in an email to The Associated Press.
The 28-day lockout has already wiped out the entire preseason and the first three days of the regular season. The NHL announced last week that all games have been cancelled through Oct. 24.

Let's face it, it's going to be a cold, long winter. We might as well contribute to society and make some babies. It will keep us busy till springtime and hopefully we won't miss hockey as much.
Hey, if there's one big stereotype about Canadians its that we live in igloos. Why not take this winter to build some? We might as well look into these architecturally amazing properties, now that we don't need a house to plug our T.V.'s into.
The ice is fresh and the hockey lovers free... its the obvious solution. Bring those sticks out and get rolling on the ice!
Minor League Hockey
Hockey is hockey and these minor league players are pretty darn good!
Let's face it, Canada is incomplete without hockey. Maybe it's time to venture out to brighter horizons and indulge in some cricket in Australia or soccer from Brazil. Hasta la vista, baby!
