NHL Tables New Offer to NHLPA

USATSI_7692312_154224518_lowresEarly this morning (3:45 AM), the infamous Eklund of HockeyBuzz reported that the NHL had made a new proposal to the NHLPA last night.

Eklund reported that the NHL had moved on it’s 5 year contract term to 6 years, increased the yearly variance from 5 percent to 10 percent, and that ‘make whole’ would remain $300 million.

As with most reports from Eklund, not everyone believes or takes seriously what he says. It took until shortly after 9:00 AM for an MSMer to report what Eklund had already put out there, that the NHL did indeed make an offer.

There are no meetings scheduled between the two sides just yet, as the NHLPA will take some time to go over the proposal.

The NHL also hasn’t moved on having the salary cap ceiling at $60 million for 2013-14, which the players have had an issue with in the past. It would mean a higher escrow payment for them, something they haven’t wanted to do.

Games are currently cancelled through January 14th. It is said that teams/players would need get an agreement 7 to 10 days before the season could start up. There is still some negotiations that needs to take place, but this is definitely a step in the right direction.
