NHLPA Exec Dir Donald Fehr said there was a “meaningful gulf” between the owners’ proposal of three weeks ago, which called for a cut in the players’ share of revenue from 56% to 47%. The players responded to the proposal in the meeting today with Bettman and the owners. Fehr said of the league’s proposal, “It didn’t look to us like the way to go. It seems to us that, overall and on a club-by-club basis, all of the revenue-sharing payments -- both the new ones and the existing ones -- would be paid for by player salary reductions.” Fehr said the union will make a presentation -- “call it a proposal, a counter-proposal, whatever you’d like,” he said -- to the owners on Tuesday.
