NEW YORK (AP) — The cast of characters in the ongoing NHL labor saga is about to get a bit of a makeover, at least for one day.

So far, Commissioner Gary Bettman and the league's negotiating committee have failed to hammer out a new collective bargaining agreement with the players' association — led by executive director Donald Fehr — that would end the long lockout that is threatening to wipe out the entire season.

After a few days of wrangling, following the conclusion of talks between the sides and a pair of federal mediators, the NHL and the union agreed on parameters for talks that will keep the respective leaders on the outside. On Tuesday, six owners will meet with six players in New York to try to find some more common ground.
