The NHL and NHLPA resumed negotiations this afternoon, with the union presenting its counter-proposal to the league's latest offer. The meeting lasted 30 minutes and they may meet again tonight. The sides are haggling over issues such as pension, contract-term limits and the salary cap ceiling, but they are believed to be close on revenue sharing. The NHLPA also has informed the league that it would accept a 10-year term for this CBA if everything fell into place.
The union is facing a deadline of today to decide if it wants to file for a disclaimer of interest. This only figures to happen if negotiations crumble tonight.
