09:14 AM ET 11.10 | A leaked internal memorandum from the players union may have caused some damage to the labor negotiations between the N.H.L. and the union Friday. Little progress was made in the talks, which were conducted for the fourth straight day, but both sides agreed to meet again Saturday. The day's most notable development came when Donald Fehr, the union's executive director, issued a sharp response to a report that the league was concerned about some of the items in the memorandum. On Thursday night, a memo was sent to the union's 725 members in which Fehr said there was a "significant gap" between the N.H.L. and the union on several important issues. On Friday night, Fehr addressed concerns that the league seemed to be raising about some of the language in the memo. Citing league sources, The Minneapolis Star Tribune said the N.H.L. believed that Fehr had misled players by inaccurately summarizing the league's positions.

They (NHL & NHLPA) can go on pucking themselves for as long as they want. I'm saving a ton of money on season tickets and related activities.
