Gary Bettman Doubles Down On NHL CBA Proposal

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman came out on Wednesday and responded to the counter proposal that they offered to the NHLPA. Bettman feels that the NHL's counter offer that was a good one, and better than what was received by the NHLPA in their initial proposal.

SB Nation's Steve Lapore relayed what Bettman said to the media about how their counter proposal was significant:

"Our counter proposal was more significant the NHLPA proposal", Bettman Said. He also added that the NHL's proposal was "meaningful and significant move."

Bettman also touched on player revenue which he believes will rebound after a few years:

Donald Fehr and the NHLPA are expected to have a counter proposal sent back to the NHL by Thursday or Friday.
