NHL Offers new Proposal to NHLPA – Full 82 game Season could be preserved
It seems like something meaningful might have happened yesterday and it is about time. The NHL proposed a 50/50 split on hockey related revenue without a salary rollback. And if sources are correct this should be for around 6 years. The league is hoping that things will get resolved asap and they could still complete an 82 game season that would start on November 2nd.
NHLPA chief Donald Fehr is keeping it close to the vest in his response but will take the offer to the negotiating committee. This will certainly be looked over with a fine tooth comb by the Player’s Association as they will have to ascertain what the agreement will actually mean when you break down the details.
I am already reading some sources saying that this new proposal doesn’t mean there will not be salary deductions so we are going to have to wait until some lawyers wade through legal jargon to see ehat all this actually means. We will have to just keep our fingers crossed as this is the first significant sign of something positive since the negotiations began. I think the fans would pretty much be satisfied at this time if an agreement can happen and preserve a full season.
