Report: NHL to cancel Winter Classic on Thursday

Two weeks ago, the league and union swapped proposals in Toronto, resulting in an impasse that doesn't seem to have any end in sight.

The NHL has already cancelled games through November 30th, and reports say the Winter Classic is next on the chopping block.

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly says the league is working to submit the next proposal.

"No new news. We withdrew our most recent proposal on Friday, and now we are spending time thinking about our next proposal and how best to get closer to a resolution," Daly said by email. "We hope the union is doing the same thing. Given the fact that the union refused even to discuss our last proposal, it would appear that we still have a large gulf to bridge."

Even with the Winter Classic cancellation looming, players seem unaffected:

The league has rejected three of the union's proposals and responded by announcing two rounds of cancellations, making the Winter Classic the third.
