The NHL hockey season just keeps slipping away.

By: Catherine Kenyeres

According to Gary Bettman, the prevailing NHL hockey commissioner, during a recent interview with TSN, the Canadian cable sports network the NHL hockey season is just slipping away. He is not confident that a settlement between the players’ union can be reached soon. Bettman maintains that the NHL needs a strong economic system and the owners will wait until such a pact is secured that ensures the league’s viability.



Furthermore, Bettman reiterated to TSN the NHL league’s dismal financial position. Both the owners and players argued whether or not the financial troubles indeed exist. The players’ union emphatically denies that the owners have any financial difficulty at all. Given this, it is hard for both sides to come to a unified solution when everyone on the face of the earth knows, except for the players’ union, that the NHL is in serious financial trouble. Bettman says, "If at any point in time the union is interested in resuming formal negotiationsBusiness Management Articles, all they have to do is let us know and we'll be happy to re-engage."

And the NHL hockey season just keeps slipping away.
