Sunday meetings ended on a disturbing note, with NHLPA head Donald Fehr telling ESPN's Katie Strang that he doesn't "see a path to an agreement" at the moment.

He also claims that Gary Bettman said the discussions are beyond the point of "give and take." Yet with all that considerable doom and gloom, Fehr still said he expects to meet again soon - he's just not sure when.

Chris Campoli didn't like the way the NHL shooed away the NHLPA's initial proposal this week.

"I thought in our proposal we made a step and considerable concessions to them," he stated after working as a member of the sub-committee on Thursday to address the secondary issues not related to the economics. "Frankly, it was a little disappointing to see the response yesterday and the view they have on it." The free agent defenseman also talked about how he didn't like the league's hardball offer to begin the negotiation process.

Chris Campoli appears as though he will be a healthy scratch on Tuesday.

He has been practicing for a week and has been granted clearance to return, but coach Jacques Martin is happy with his defense corps right now and he figures Campoli would benefit from some additional practice time. He hasn't played since Montreal's season opener because of a hamstring injury.

Chris Campoli (hamstring) has been given the green light to return to the Canadiens' lineup.

Whether or not Campoli actually plays on Saturday is another question. Canadiens coach Jacques Martin won't make a commitment either way and he probably won't decide until just prior to game-time on Saturday.

Chris Campoli (hamstring) skated with his teammates Monday for the first time since he was cleared for contact.

"It's another step in my progress." he said. "The doctors gave the green light for me to play with contact. I had the same color jersey as everyone else today, which was good. I feel great, but the only way I'll ever know is when I'll play. There are some plays during games you can't replicate in practice." There isn't a timetable in place for his return, but it could come as soon as Thursday against Vancouver or Saturday in New Jersey. Stay tuned.

Canadiens defenseman Chris Campoli is expected to miss multiple months due to an injury suffered to his left leg in Thursday's game against Toronto.

Details about the nature of the injury haven't been made available yet, but a groin ailment was suspected after Campoli left Thursday's contest. This is terrible news for the blueliner, who recently signed a one-year, $1.75 million contract to play in Montreal. We'll pass along more details as they become available, but it appears safe to drop Campoli in your fantasy league.

Chris Campoli (groin) still needs to be examined before the severity of his injury will be known.

"I feel more bad for him than anything," Michael Cammalleri said of Campoli's status. "As a group, we’ll recover and figure it out. It’s never about one man, but I feel sorry for him because he was excited to be part of our group and get the season going." Perhaps we're reading too much into it, but that sounds like the words of a man that thinks Campoli's injury isn't minor. Montreal signed Campoli to a one-year/$1.75 million contract on September 26th.
