The NHL owners sent out an “expanded” proposal to the NHLPA, covering some of the lesser issues in the negotiation, reports The Globe and Mail.
While the two sides remain far from a deal, the players and owners are expected to finish off the week of negotiations by hammering out some of the smaller issues in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
These include: “grievances, training camp procedures, medical care, methods of communication, roster moves and injuries.” Commissioner Gary Bettman called these topics the “nuts and bolts proposals.”
The NHLPA expects the full counterproposal will be presented relatively soon.
