Players Submit Counter Offer, Awaiting NHL’s Response

USATSI_7749225_154224518_lowresAfter reviewing the NHL’s 288 page proposal for three days, the NHLPA submitted a counter proposal yesterday afternoon.

Don Fehr, along with a group of players that included Ron Hainsey, Chris Campoli, Jamal Mayers, Rick DiPietro, Martin St. Louis and eventually Shane Doan, arrived at the NHL’s office after 2:oo PM to make their proposal. The group left by 5:00 PM as the NHL said they needed time to go over it.

“Their response was a comprehensive one dealing with the full slate of issues we raised and proposals we put forth,” Commissioner Gary Bettman said. “We are in the process of reviewing their response. We are going to do that tonight, and our expectation is that we will contact them tomorrow morning and arrange to get back together, certainly by midday.”

The NHL submitted a memo with their offer on Thursday that they would like to have a 48 game season starting on January 19th.

“It would be premature for me to characterize (Monday’s session), and not particularly helpful to the process,” Bettman said.

“(Players) have come back with a comprehensive response,” Bettman said, “which is why we need some time to analyze it, just like they needed three days to look at our proposal before they could get back to us.”

Nothing has really been leaked as to what is in the players offer, with both sides being tight lipped.

“As I’ve said repeatedly, two things,’ Fehr said. “I’m out of the prediction business, and you get up every day and try to figure out a way to make an agreement that day. And if it fails, you try to do it the next day. And that’s exactly where we are.”

The NHL is expected to get back to the NHLPA sometime this morning with their response.
