After two months of labor negotiations that have gone nowhere, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman proposed that the league and its players' association take a two-week moratorium from talks. Will a break from discussions help both sides regroup and come back to the bargaining table refreshed, or is it just delaying the inevitable of a canceled season?

What would a possible two-week moratorium do for NHL negotiations?
