NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly recently said that the league is done making proposals. It looks like the league might be done talking too, at least for a little while.

Commissioner Gary Bettman recently proposed a two-week moratorium on CBA talks, according to the Canadian Press.

We are extremely disappointed in where we and the Players find ourselves, Daly said. And from our perspective, we have made repeated moves in the Players direction with absolutely no reciprocation. Unfortunately, we have determined we are involved with Union leadership that has no genuine interest in reaching an agreement. Regardless of what we propose, or how we suggest to compromise the answer is no. At some point you just have to say enough is enough.

All the same, if the NHL wants to talk, the NHLPA is willing to do just that.
