WOULD THE NHL REALLY GO THROUGH LOCKOUT NOW?
Published September 15, 1994
ESPN's Keith Olberman: "Our sources tell us the latest target date for the lockout is after the first week of the season, on or about October 7th. There is a bargaining session set for Friday in New York" ("SportsCenter," 9/14). NHL players will be taking a set of proposals for a new collective bargaining agreement. The league wants to link revenues and salaries with "some form of revenue-sharing." Players want "nothing to do with anything they say limits salaries." NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has proposed a number of concepts, including a pyramid payroll structure that would "slot salaries according to percentages of team revenue" (Alan Adams, CANADIAN PRESS/OTTAWA CITIZEN, 9/15). FOX IMPACT: NHLPA Exec Dir Bob Goodenow said the Fox TV deal will have "some impact" on negotiations, "but to what degree I don't know" (CP/OTTAWA CITIZEN, 9/15).
