League-wide revenues have remained strong throughout the course of the NHL season and will surpass initial projections by some $300 million US, players agents were told Wednesday in a meeting with the NHL Players' Association.... It's great news for the players, who will not have to pay any escrow this season as salaries will have not taken more than 54 per cent of revenues. In fact, there's a good chance owners may owe additional money back to the players once the final figures exceed $2.1 billlion. "Terrific news," said veteran agent Don Meehan of Newport Sports.
