Meetings between the NHL and its players' association ended yesterday for the week, and NHL chief legal officer Bill Daly said progress was made in negotiations toward a new collective bargaining agreement.

"The meetings this week were good and we continue to make progress," Daly said. "Obviously, we know that time is of the essence in working to conclude a new CBA, and both sides are proceeding on that basis. We will resume negotiations in New York on Monday."

Sid will play anywhere

Sidney Crosby, who will be the first pick once an NHL draft is held, hopes a 'normal' draft is held.

"I don't know how they're going to decide (the No. 1 pick) and it doesn't matter to me where I go," he said. "I just want to play in the NHL. It's actually kind of exciting when you hear all the different talk on what they're going to do."
