Pivotal Day In NHL Talks Could Feature New Offer Or Cancellations
The NHLPA this morning is "expected to table a new proposal" when CBA talks resume in N.Y. This comes at the same time the league is expected to "wipe the first two weeks of December off the schedule" (CP, 11/20). USA TODAY's Kevin Allen writes today is the "most pivotal day in the negotiations," and this comes amid reports that NHLPA Exec Dir Donald Fehr "has been getting pressure from some agents to get a deal done." The N.Y. POST's Larry Brooks writes, "There is a zero percent chance talks toward ending the lockout will gain traction unless the union presents an offer that features a 50-50 split of hockey-related revenue." Meanwhile, "details of what has already been agreed to" are "beginning to emerge."
