NHL, NHLPA To Resume CBA Talks Wednesday

The current collective bargaining agreement between the NHL and the NHL Players' Association is set to expire on Sept. 15. As in most situations like this, the two sides are running into some issues as they negotiate in an attempt to hammer out a new agreement prior to the 2012-13 NHL season.

The Associated Press reports that representatives from the NHL and NHLPA, who last met on Friday, will resume talks on Wednesday. At the moment, the biggest issue appears to be with total revenue -- the players are happy with their current cut of NHL revenues, while the owners would like the players to have a lower take.

The two sides have been proactive in their meetings throughout the offseason so far and are hopeful that a deal will eventually be reached in time.

NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr believes that any potential strike on the part of the players is being viewed purely as a last resort.
