NHLPA's CBA Proposal To Present 'Alternative View' On Economic Issues

Representatives from both the NHL and the NHL Players' Association held the first of four days of labor talks Monday as negotiations begin to heat up with the current collective bargaining agreement set to expire on September 15. Economic issues continue to be the major divide with the NHL Players' Association set to make their proposal on Tuesday.

NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr said Tuesday's pitch will not be a counter-proposal to the deal the NHL presented in July. Instead, Fehr said the Players' Association will, "put forth an alternative view as to what we should do next."

The NHL's July proposal asked players to lower their percentage of hockey related revenue from 57 percent to 46 percent. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman recently said the league would lock out the players if there is no new agreement when the current agreement expires.
