With the NHL's collective bargaining agreement set to expire on Saturday at midnight both sides reiterated their positions on Thursday in New York.

NHLPA boss Donald Fehr was up first, stating that the players made huge concessions at the bargaining table during the last lockout and revenue has dramatically increased.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman then responded by saying the NHL season won’t start until there is a new CBA. Bettman argued that owners simply can’t pay the players current 57 per cent of the hockey-related revenue.
