On Tuesday afternoon, the National hockey league met with the players association. Gary Bettman and the NHL proposed an offer to the NHLPA, which is considered the best offer so far. The NHL offered a 50/50 proposal on hockey related revenue.
The offer is a six year offer, and if accepted, the season would start November 2nd. One game will be added to the schedule every five week in order to keep the 82 game season. Today’s proposal offers no rollback on the players contract, which was a huge bargaining chip.
The puck is in the players corner now. The NHLPA will hold a conference call to discuss the offer. Donald Fehr said the offer is a big, detailed proposal, and we can expect a decision today or tomorrow.
