NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said following Wednesday’s meetings that the league wants to see a new Collective Bargaining Agreement proposal from the NHL Players Association, reports Buffalo News.
“We’re encouraging them to make a proposal,” he said. “We understand that they’ve been working on some concepts, some ideas. We’ve suggested to them just make the proposal. Any movement is better than no movement at all. If we move sideways, hopefully we’d move it forward, but even if we move backward it might be better than where we are now.” Daly expressed his disappointment after the latest meetings went into the books because major issues still aren’t being discussed and he is fearful of the NHL losing the momentum it has built up over the past seven years.
