NHLPA Will Make CBA Proposal To Owners Today In Toronto
The NHLPA today will make a CBA proposal to the league's owners during a meeting in Toronto. It is expected that it will not be a direct response to the NHL's proposal of a month ago, which called for major cuts in the players' share of revenues. Instead, the proposal will include ideas on increased revenue sharing among the league's 30 teams. It may also propose the elimination of the salary cap.
NHLPA Exec Dir Donald Fehr yesterday afternoon told reporters the proposal will be an "alternate view" of the league's first offer. A large contingent of players, including stars Sidney Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin and Steven Stamkos, are expected to attend today's meeting, which begins at 11:00 am ET.
