Hope for full NHL season
TORONTO – The stalled talks between the NHL and the players’ association finally got a jump start.
After watching 34 days pass without a new proposal being offered from either side in negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement, Commissioner Gary Bettman made a new offer to the NHLPA that proposes a 50-50 split of hockey-related revenue and a full 82-game season starting Nov. 2.
As talks resumed for the first time since last week between the league and the union, Bettman proudly announced the offer, which is crafted for – if nothing else – a quick response from the head of the players’ association, Donald Fehr, followed by some serious negotiations either here or in New York.
