08:22 AM ET 12.20 | Good news, hockey fans? Speaking to a large throng of media [in Toronto] before an NHLPA charity hockey game at the former Maple Leaf Gardens, NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr was asked why bargaining has not resumed this week. "Because the owners have not indicated a desire to resume," Fehr said. ... NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly, reached by ESPN.com via email Wednesday evening, said the league is willing to resume talks under the right conditions. "We haven't said we won't meet, but we certainly would want to know what the agenda is." ... Daly created a buzz earlier Wednesday when during a Hockey Night In Canada radio interview he was asked for a simple yes or no answer to whether he thought there would be a season this year. He responded, "Yes."
