Madison Square Garden CEO James Dolan says he is willing to join talks with players in efforts to end the NHL lockout, reports the New York Post.

According to the report, Dolan signaled his desire to become involved in the NHL talks upon NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman’s suggestion that it might be beneficial that the league's owners talk to the players.

It is unknown whether the Garden CEO has officially volunteered his services to Bettman, with whom he has had essentially no personal relationship dating back to at least 2007 when the Garden urged the commissioner be ousted in conjunction with filing suit against the NHL in a dispute concerning website, digital rights, licensing and team merchandise control.
The league and the players association have been trying to mediate their differences in order to save the season, which has already cancelled games including the Winter Classic and the All-Star Game. The Rangers could lose up to $60 million if the entire season is cancelled.
