Wednesday Chum Bucket: CBA talks resume

Brad Penner-US PRESSWIRE
  • CBA negotiations between the league and PA resumed yesterday in New York, with a 7-hour marathon session that reportedly included 13 players. Both sides were mum about topics discussed afterward, which is probably a good thing. [Defending Big D]
  • Talks will continue today, with the "make whole" proposition (guaranteeing players the full value of contracts already signed, at least before taking escrow into account) on the agenda. [Pro Hockey Talk]
  • More on the Bulls' signing of Oilers defenseman Theo Peckham. [San Francisco Chronicle]
  • Elliotte Friedman's always-excellent 30 Thoughts, including a few speculating that the NHL might still be open to an 82-game season even if it means the Stanley Cup is awarded in July. [CBC]
  • We all know Joe Thornton should shoot the goddamn puck more often but it's nice to have some compelling evidence to back that up: only four players in the entire NHL were responsible for a smaller percentage of the shots attempted by their team while they were on the ice. [NHL Numbers]
  • DGB checks in with NHL stars playing overseas during the lockout. [Down Goes Brown]
