To probably nobody's surprise, the NHL and the NHLPA emerged from two days of mediation on Thursday with no progress to report.
So what, or who, can solve this stalemate?
After the mediation session, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman proposed that leadership from both sides step aside for the next bargaining session and let a group of owners and players work out an agreement.
But CBCSports.ca user Der Kilt has a better idea: "Oh, the hell with this. Send in Don Cherry and have him start bashing some heads together until they all capitulate."
What do YOU think? Could Don figure out a way to end the lockout?
