Labour talks between the NHL and the NHL Players' Association are set to resume on Thursday in New York with several key issues still requiring negotiation.
According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the second year salary cap is still a pressing topic as the players are looking for $65 million, while the NHL remains committed to a $60 million cap.
Additional issues such as terms on contracts and pension remain the most significant "open" issues, according to Dreger. Pension experts are joining the talks to deal with the issues.
TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com reports that the NHLPA is spending Thursday morning updating its full membership.
LeBrun also says that the NHL has upped its compliance buyout offer to two players per team, up from one prior to the 2013-14 season.
