NHL Players Association executive director Donald Fehr made two separate appearances Thursday in front of a large throng of reporters moments apart after talks with the league ended. Initially, Fehr said he believed the sides had agreements on some key issues, but he returned soon after to say NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly left a voicemail saying that the players' offer wasn't good enough.

The voicemail, left for union special counsel Steve Fehr, said "some things or everything" the league has offered is now off the table, according to Donald Fehr, who added that this is not a positive development.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was expected to speak later Thursday.
