TORONTO -- The NHL Players' Association will meet with their representatives from all 30 teams on Nov. 2, a day after the players will have missed
their third paycheck since the start of the owners' lockout.
The union gives daily updates to the players on a secure Web site, but the meeting will give the players' reps a chance to hear directly from
executive director Bob Goodenow.
The league and the NHLPA haven't met or spoken since a negotiating session in Toronto on Sept. 9 -- one week before the lockout was imposed -- and no
talks are scheduled.
So far 59 games have been canceled due to the lockout, and on Monday the NHL instructed the teams to schedule events in their arenas 45 days in
advance -- through early December.
