The NHL Players' Association laid out their counter proposal to the one set down by the NHL several weeks ago.
Here are some of the highlights via ProHockeyTalk.com
– Proposed three-year collective bargaining agreement, with an option for a fourth. The fourth year is an option to revert to the current CBA.
– Players are willing to take a lower HHR (hockey related revenue) share over the next three years.
– Current rules for player salaries, contract lengths and free agent eligibility would remain unchanged.
– Deal would include a hard salary cap “with some exceptions.”
– One exception appears to be a luxury tax.
Negotiations continue in Toronto. Superstars Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin were in attendance. NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr said the players "want to make a deal."
