he NHL has officially locked out its players after failing to reach a new collective bargaining agreement. At the heart of the dispute is how league revenue will be split between players and team owners. This is the embattled league's fourth work stoppage since 1993. No negotiations took place Saturday and there are no talks planned, raising concerns that the season won't start on its scheduled day of Oct. 11. Training camps were scheduled to open next Friday.
