CBA Update: Least Promising Day Yet

When meetings between league officials and NHLPA representation ended on Thursday morning in Toronto, the likelihood of the 2012-13 season starting on time appears to be growing more faint.

The NHLPA reportedly presented the remainder of their proposal to the league this morning, including their response to the owners changes to player contracts. When he met with the media at the conclusion of the meeting, Commissioner Gary Bettman indicated that the two sides still aren’t close on fundamental economic issues.

The two sides did agree to meet again on Tuesday. So we’ve got that going for us…

    According to several sources I saw, the NHLPA had lunch meetings scheduled, so the short meeting this morning was no surprise.

    I would encourage you to continue reading those sources, Tony, as the language used by the commissioner had little/nothing to do w/ the NHLPA’s afternoon schedule and more to do w/ the full proposal the players gave the league this morning.

    The news just continues to depress me…The fact I have to continue watching the Cubs is punishment enough.

    Is it just me or are the owners flat out lying about not making money? They talk about the players making too much money and yet they are sprinting to sign as many players as possible at big $$$$money contracts before Sept 15. Tyler Hall, Phil Hartnall, and Shane Doan indicating he will sign the rumored 4 year deal before Sept 15. A bit hypocritical for me! After the lockout Bettman deserves every Boooooooo he receives. The luster will fall off Rocky Wirtz too.
