Bill Daly and Steve Fehr met for the first time in more than two weeks yesterday. The result of the meeting brings positive vibes for the NHL season. Daly and Fehr met until 1 a.m. Sunday morning

"We had a series of meetings yesterday and exchanged views on the most important issues separating us," Daly said to ESPN's Pierre LeBrun. 'We plan to meet again sometime early this week."

This is a very good sign for NHL fans that the two sides have started meeting again. It has been more than two weeks since the two sides last met in New York. And it appears that the talks went well.

"We covered all the primary issues," Daly told USA Today's Kevin Allen. "We'll see where we go from here."

The cancelation of the Winter Classic might have sparked both sides to get together as both players and owners were disappointed the league's marquee event was called off. And with hopes to keep the positive feelings going, both sides are attempting to keep leaks of what was discussed to a minimum.

Both sides have agreed to keep confidential in an attempt to keep the focus on the talks and not on conducting media scrums," Fehr wrote in an email to the players.

If the confidentially came happen, then there just might be a NHL season yet.
