The league amended a proposal made last month to shift the cost of the NHL designed 'make whole' provision from the players share over to the owners side.
The concept of "Make Whole" is a protection plan to cover player salary reduction in dropping the players revenue share from 57% to 50% in year 1 of a new CBA.
The NHL proposal included a deferred payment system which the league is also willing to reconsider when negotiations resume.
This move by the owners is considered a significant concession.
The two sides are expected to meet no later than early next week.
