NHL talks done for the day
The NHL tonight offered up a proposal to the NHLPA, which the players association will now digest.
The offer was delivered duriing a 30-minute bargaining session tonight in New York City. Talks resumed this evening after conference calls and smaller group meetings were held earlier in the day. The two sides are expected to meet again tomorrow.
PA head Don Fehr said the owners provided the players with a comprehensive followup to the proposal that had been presented previously by the players.
Gary Bettman says tomorrow's deadline for players' union to file disclaimer of interest "is not something we're focused on." The commissioner made it clear there is still work to be done, vis-a-vis CBA talks.
Former Habs Mathieu Darche and Chris Campoli are part of the players' delegation.
The two sides are trying to come together on a new CBA in time to save the season, which commissioner Bettman has already stated must begin by Jan. 19 in order to get in a season of at least 48 games.
