Will the CBA be Terminated Next Year?

From Michael Russo at the Star Tribune,

The six-year CBA, which runs until Sept. 15, 2011, gives the NHLPA the right to reopen the agreement and begin negotiations on a new one by May 15.

“I’m pretty careful not to give my opinion publicly out of respect for the players,” said NHLPA Executive Director Paul Kelly, who met with the Wild players last Tuesday in Dallas. “This is a very serious issue that we’re discussing on the fall tour.”

Every player in the NHL will receive, or has already filled out, a confidential questionnaire that will be put into a sealed envelope until all 30 teams have been surveyed. They’re being asked a yes-or-no question: “Should we terminate the CBA at the end of the current season?”
