NHL owners/players talks break off again
By: DJ Bean

What looked like a promising week for the NHL turned into more of the same Thursday when the owners rejected the players' latest offer and left negotiations without a new CBA. Furthermore, there are no further negotiating sessions planned. 

The sides had seemingly made progress this week fueled by players/owners only meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday, but things hit a roadblock on Thursday when Gary Bettman re-entered the picture and the players asked for mediators to be brought back as well. The owners didn't go for that, nor did they go for what the players sought in their new proposal. 

"We have moved dramatically, we are proposing a long-term system that will play the players billions and billions of dollars over its term, but we have to have a system that works right," Bettman said. "It's all part of the package. I am disappointed beyond belief that we are where we are tonight. We're going to have to take a deep breath...

Hazen: Sox still engaged on Hamilton

Red Sox assistant GM Mike Hazen, in an interview on WEEI's Red Sox Hot Stove Show, said that the team continues to talk to free agent outfielder Josh Hamilton. He declined to go into specifics about the nature of the conversations, but suggested that the team will remain in dialogue with the slugger, as it will with other free agents while determining what it will take to sign them. 

Asked whether he could envision a deal that was relatively short on years with a high average annual value for the outfielder, Hazen responded, "I can’t talk about anything specifically as it relates to free agency. I think some of the things that have already been reported should in some cases give a fairly clear message as to which direction we’re moving.

"We’re staying engaged with Josh and all the other free agents, and we’ll see where it goes. You don’t know how these markets are going to develop. Sometimes you have a...

Ortiz on signings: 'I think we're on our way'

PUNTA CANA, Dominican Republic -- Speaking at the reception gala for the David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic at the Sanctuary Hotel Thursday night, Ortiz exuded optimism after the Red Sox' recent acquisitions of Mike Napoli and Shane Victorino.

"We're getting some good players," he said. "We're getting good players, and that's what it's all about. That's how you win games."

Ortiz later elaborated, saying, "I think we're on our way. They still have some other things to do. I think that's a good way to start things. There's a lot of guys who still can go that I'm sure they're going to be chasing. I tell you guys, the winter meetings and up, you're going to see some things happen."

Ortiz appeared genuinely relieved that the Red Sox had added to the middle of the batting order, especially from the right-side. When appearing on the Hot Stove Show a week before he had said the team needed more "thunder" in...

Wilfork: Texans are 'best team in the NFL'

Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork is a man who always speaks his mind. On Thursday, he spoke his mind about the 11-1 Houston Texans, the team he and the 9-3 Patriots will be battling Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

"They're the best team in the NFL," Wilfork said without hesitation. "They're the best team for a reason. They do a lot of things well. They've been in some blowouts, they've been in some tough games, they've been in some overtime [games]. This [is] a team that has played through it all. And they seem to rally around one another, and that's the sign of a great team. They definitely have what it takes to be a champion. You have to respect that."

One thing Wilfork and the Patriots defensive line will have to respect and solve is the zone blocking scheme of their offensive line, a complicated scheme that mirrors what the Broncos did with Terrell Davis in the late 1990s.

"They cut, they don't cut, they man...
