There’s no sign that the two-day-old NHL lockout will end any time soon, with both the players and owners appearing to dig into their positions. The players have been locked out since 11:59 p.m. Saturday, after months of negotiations failed to result in a contract agreement by the deadline. The NHL pre-season is set to begin on Sept. 23, with the regular season scheduled to start on Oct. 11. But that will only happen if a deal can be reached between NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, and the NHLPA’s Executive Director Donald Fehr.
