No CBA Discussion Today

National Hockey League deputy commissioner Bill Daly is hopeful collective bargaining with the NHL Players’ Association will resume this week, with the main executives from both sides expected to be in Toronto.

“No bargaining sessions scheduled,” Daly said Monday. “But we have kept in close contact and, obviously, it’s fair to say both sides are working. But they’re working internally right now.”...

“Obviously, we’ve got to talk before you can get a deal ” Daly said. “So I think it’s important to get the talks going again. But you also have to have something to say — and I think it’s fair to say we feel like we need to hear from the players’ association in a meaningful way, because I don’t think they’ve really moved off of their initial proposal, which was made more than a month ago.”

I’m shocked. I wish I cared as little about the game as much as Gary Bettman does.

Don’t worry Gary you will win this negotiation. And by win I mean turn the NHL into a bigger joke.than it already is. Cancel the season and show these players who the boss is!!

This is how the negotiations have gone so far, the player are at 57%, the League offers 43% percent. Anything above 43% the owners consider a gain by the players and anything below 57% is seen by the players as a loss. There is no 50/50 split because each side will claim a 7% loss, when it is only one side that ever had 7% to give in from the start.
