NHLPA hopes to continue talks next week

The SportsXchange

The NHL Players Association hopes to meet with the league next week to continue negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement, RDS Montreal reported Friday.

NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr and NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly spoke Friday but did not schedule a new meeting.

League commissioner Gary Bettman had proposed two-week moratorium on negotiations.

Games thru November have already been cancelled and a new round of cancellations are expected the middle of next week if a new deal is not done. The two sides, however, are still far apart on how to divide hockey-related revenue.

The latest players' proposal reportedly would provide them with more than $1 billion more than a 50/50 split over the next five seasons.
