08:22 AM ET 12.11 | Though last week's fireworks helped shut down the path to a deal, the lines of communication between the league and players remains at least partially open. A source familiar with the situation told ESPN.com Monday that talks are expected to resume at some point this week, although the time and location for such a meeting have yet to be ironed out. It's possible, for instance, the two sides would meet in a neutral location, away from Toronto, where the NHLPA is headquartered, and New York, where the league's main offices are located. [Bill Daly] and his counterpart with the NHLPA, Steve Fehr, met privately last month in an effort to jump-start negotiations. The two sides met for three consecutive days last week, but to no avail.

Hey why not. Go someplace warm and have somebody else pay for it. I've always thought that that is the only reason for Phoenix.

Go to the Arctic and take Bettman so he can get an idea of the proper environment for hockey, ice, cold weather, polar bears - those sorts of things.
