NHL urges NHLPA to bring full CBA proposal to table

NEW YORK -- The National Hockey League on Monday night urged the National Hockey League Players' Association to present a comprehensive proposal for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement that details its position on all of the fundamental economic issues that divide the two sides, according to NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.

The request to the Union came at the conclusion of a negotiating session at the League office that lasted approximately 90 minutes.

"It's our position that we've made a couple of comprehensive proposals in a row and we'd like to know where they are on all the issues and we'd ask them to think about putting together a comprehensive proposal for us to consider," Daly said. "They said they were going to take it back and talk internally and get back to us [Tuesday] morning. That's where it stands."

Daly said he doesn't know if the NHLPA will meet the League's request for a new comprehensive economic proposal. He believes that is what representatives from the Union were planning to discuss when they adjourned the meeting and left the League office Monday night.

Neither Daly nor NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr could confirm that the two sides would hold another CBA meeting Tuesday, but both said they will at least be in touch in the morning.

"I think it's probably more likely than not," Fehr said of chances the NHL and NHLPA will meet Tuesday.

Eighteen players accompanied Fehr to the meeting Monday night.

Daly said the League understands that player-contracting issues are related to the other fundamental economic issues, but the NHL would prefer to "see where we are and how close we might be on economics before we are necessarily tackling where exactly we are on player contracting."

The division of hockey-related revenue in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement -- including the League's "make whole" proposal to deal with existing contracts that would exceed a newly-established Players' Share -- is at the forefront of the fundamental economic issues the sides face, according to Daly.

The NHL and NHLPA have been without a CBA since Sept. 16 and the League already has canceled the regular-season schedule through Dec. 1 and the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, scheduled for Jan. 1.

Daly said the NHL will have to make a decision on cancelling more games if a new CBA is not negotiated soon.

"I understand there is a lot of frustration in the process," Daly said. "I'm frustrated in terms of being where we are and not playing hockey."

However, both Fehr and Daly said the sides would continue to meet provided there is a reason to meet.

"We're never going to shut down the process like that," Daly said. "If they think there is a reason to meet and we can make progress we're happy to meet. That's what we told them and that's what led to [Monday]'s meeting."
