With an assist from a federal mediator, the NHL and the players' union appear to be inching closer to a settlement that would end their lengthy labor dispute, bring players back from Europe, and start a shortened season in less than two weeks. If an agreement is reached by Friday, a 48-game season would start Jan. 19, with teams likely playing a conference-only schedule. After both sides talked separately Saturday morning with federal mediator Scot Beckenbaugh in New York City, the parties got together near 1 p.m. - the first time they had met in the same room since negotiations broke down early Thursday morning.

After three-plus months with little significant negotiating, the NHL and the players' union have traded four proposals - two each - since last Thursday as they attempt to end their labor dispute. Yes, there finally is some urgency because of an approaching Jan. 11 deadline. During a meeting Wednesday afternoon in New York City, the union made a counterproposal to the NHL's New Year's Day offer. The sides then met again Wednesday night and were still at the bargaining table late in the evening.

NEW YORK - Long before NHL commissioner Gary Bettman enacted this flawed lockout 111 days ago, the league entered bargaining in July with a laundry list of demands. Among the original absolutes were a reduction in the players' revenue share, and thus a reduction in the salary cap, along with unrealistic ideals of limiting free agency and arbitration rights. Remember when deputy commissioner Bill Daly said on Dec. 6 that limiting contracts to a maximum of 5 years was a "hill we're prepared to die on"?

Even though Michael Vick will start Sunday against the Giants in the Eagle's season finale, many have closed the book on his tenure with the team. But the Eagles could decide to bring him back for 2013. Vick is under contract through 2015. But he is due $15.5 million in base salary next season and the Eagles are unlikely to retain him at that figure if he is to compete with Nick Foles for the starting quarterback job or be the emergency backup. Would Vick be willing to renegotiate his contract?

The NHL has made some concessions - most notably in the length of contracts and including amnesty buyouts - in an effort to salvage part of the season. Representatives from the league and the players' union are expected to have a conference call Saturday to discuss the developments and may meet Sunday in New York. Friday was the 104th day of the lockout, and games have been canceled through Jan. 14. According to multiple reports Friday, the league has offered teams one compliance (also known as "amnesty")

When Howie Roseman took over the business side of the Eagles' football operations this past offseason, he became one of 10 NFL general managers to handle both player evaluations and contract negotiations. The number is down to nine after Panthers GM Marty Hurney was fired in October. The remaining eight reflect a wide array of decision-makers. There are former players such as John Elway (Broncos) and Reggie McKenzie (Raiders). There are longtime scouts who worked their way up the chain of command such as Rod Graves (Cardinals)

NEW YORK - Walking away from the NHL's latest round of bargaining sessions on Wednesday, it would be easy to remain pessimistic about this 69-day labor standoff between the league and its players association by simply listening to the leaders. "We're still far apart," commissioner Gary Bettman said. "The players did an awful lot here," NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr said. Believe it or not, I'm actually more optimistic about some sort of season being played, after letting this week's meetings marinate a bit. They are not close to a deal by any means, but there are positives.

There were early indications of positive developments as the NHL and NHL Players' Association met Wednesday morning in New York. But when an afternoon session ended, it was clear the sides weren't close to a labor agreement. The NHL rejected the union proposal, and no new talks were scheduled. "I'm disappointed," Donald Fehr, executive director of the NHLPA, said of the league's reaction. He added that the NHL had offered no reciprocity on major issues. Gary Bettman, the NHL commissioner, told reporters that he was happy the NHLPA made a proposal but that the sides were "far apart.

Andy Reid announced Monday that he doesn't intend to resign his position as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, which doesn't really qualify as news, but the question had to be asked. If there was news, that was it: The question had to be asked. In a forum usually devoted to the moving chessboard of players and the shifting calculus of offensive and defensive schemes, it had become necessary to make sure the coach wasn't going to pitch it all and go tarpon fishing or something.
