NHL CBA Proposal 'Won't Fly' With NHLPA, According To Report

The NHL made a new CBA proposal on Tuesday and the initial reaction from the NHLPA is that the new proposal is very similar to the first and it won't fly.

There had been some initial optimism regarding Tuesday's meeting and the NHLPA has yet to make any official response, but this is not an encouraging sign. In addition to the anonymous source from above, Canadiens left winger Mathieu Darche, who was present at the meetings, said that the proposal didn't take the NHL five minutes to come up with and it won't take the NHLPA five minutes to analyze it.

Gary Bettman and the NHL remain optimistic that this newest proposal is a step in the right direction, but we'll have to wait and see what Donald Fehr and the NHLPA have to say on Wednesday.
