NHL lockout: Penguins' Craig Adams 'not sure where we are'

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

As NHL Armageddon draws closer, Craig Adams doesn't know how to feel about the direction of talks.

On Thursday, the NHL made a new offer to the NHL Players' Association, apparently making a few concessions that previously were said to be impossible for the owners.

Now, the players are looking over the deal as the two sides talk via conference call, with both parties hoping to get to the bargaining table sooner rather than later.

Craig Adams, the Pittsburgh Penguins' representative in all of this, says he isn't totally sure about where the talks stand after Saturday and if there is more ground to cover with the proposed deal moving forward, according to the Post-Gazette.

The NHL season will already be shortened almost to half its normal length should a deal be struck soon. Games have been cancelled through Jan. 14, leaving only a few months for games before a full-length postseason.

If the NHL doesn't play this season, it would mark the second time since 2005 when an entire season was missed, the only North American sport ever to do so due to a labor stoppage.
