Throw The NHL Proposal Out The Window

from TSN and ESPN files,

The National Hockey League will withdraw its latest CBA proposal to the NHL Players' Association once Thursday's deadline to finalize a new deal passes.

There were no talks held between both sides on Thursday and none have been held since last week's NHL proposal and counter-proposals from the NHLPA.

"When we delivered the proposal last Tuesday, we told them it would be on the table through today," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun on ESPN.com Thursday afternoon. "Having not reached agreement through today, I expect that we'll formally notify the union Friday that the proposal is no longer on the table. We're going to take it back internally and figure out where we go from here."
 
Daly also emphasized that he was not threatening the players in any way, but underlying what the league had already told the the NHLPA last Tuesday when it delivered the proposal.

Here is a story from Pierre LeBrun from ESPN with the same message.

This must be what Bettman meant by a “step backwards”.

Worse yet, will Krys Barch be able to afford the beer and matches to continue his prolific new career as a poet??

HAHAHAHA

Precognition?  Is that what you call it when someone does exactly what they said they would do?

I was excited that there were 7 comments already re: shady negotiation tactics. It’s a real bummer that it was just another pissing contest.
