• The games missed to this point remains the entire exhibition schedule (97 games). If more progress isn't made over the next two days in New York, it won't be long before regular-season games start to be missed.
• While the two sides made what can be described as "baby steps" on Friday, they still haven't discussed the big financial issues and might not do so this weekend. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly seemed to be a little frustrated by that on Friday, though he admitted what they did talk about (drug testing, player safety and discipline, etc.) is important.

His career included six 100-point seasons, eight Norris Trophies as the NHL's best defenseman, two MVP awards, and two Art Ross Trophies as the league's leading scorer (again ... as a defenseman). So here are seven minutes of him at his very best.
