NHL Lockout Possible

TORONTO () -- National Hockey League players aren't surprised at talk of a possible lockout when training camps open unless progress is made in stalled collective bargaining talks.

"The guys are all supposed to have saved their money for the possibility that this would happen," said Bill Ranford, the player representative for the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday.

No talks are scheduled between the NHL and the NHL Players' Association. The sides met for three hours last week and remained far apart on issues, chiefly salaries.
