Jonathan Toews believes the under-the-radar nature of the NHL and NHLPA's current negotiations bodes well for future labor peace.

"It's probably the way it should be, and I think that's probably a good sign that there is some mutual respect and both sides are trying to come to agreements," the Chicago Blackhawks captain said, according to The Associated Press' Stephen Whyno. "You have mutual dedication to keeping our game going down the same path and not disrupting that."

After meeting in New York last week, the two sides held discussions Monday and will meet again Tuesday, according to Sportsnet's Chris Johnston.
