Cory Schneider Isn’t Panicking Over NHL’s Initial Collective Bargaining Agreement Offer
Vancouver Canucks goaltender Cory Schneider, who is a member of the players bargaining committee, isn’t panicking over the NHL’s bold initial Collective Bargaining Agreement offer.
“It’s a starting point. We’re going to consider it and figure out what our counter proposal is going to be. Yes, it is a little shocking when you first look at it but, again, that’s how negotiations work. You aim high and then try to move back from there. There is going to have to be a lot of give and take for us to come to an agreement, so we’re not too worried and we’re not panicking right now. We’re just going to take it one meeting at a time.” He added that it’s still too early to bet on a lockout. There’s still plenty of time for the league and union to work something out.
