NHL Labor Talks 17 Oct 12

The NHL is making a new labor proposal to the players in an effort to end the lockout. The league says it is proposing a 50-50 split of hockey-related revenue with no salary rollbacks. Commissioner Gary Bettman says the offer is contingent on an 82-game season that would begin November 2nd.

The NHL’s previous proposal called for a 57-43 split of revenue favoring the owners. The league locked out the players after the previous collective bargaining agreement expired on September 15th. Regular season games have already been cancelled through October 24th.
