NHL proposes 50-50 Revenue Split to Players


TORONTO – Gary Bettman and the NHL has proposed a new Collective Bargaining Agreement on Tuesday which they are hoping can allow for an 82 game season to take place this year.

“We very much want to preserve a full 82-game season and in that light we made a proposal, an offer really,” Commissioner Gary Bettman said. “It is our best shot at preserving an 82-game regular season and  Playoffs.”

“We’re focused on getting the season started on Nov. 2. That’s what this offer was about”,  said Bettman.

“Gary indicated to me and I assume he indicated to you that they would like to get a full 82-game season in,” Don Fehr said. “We, of course, share that view and would like to get a full 82-game season in. And, so, what our hope is that after we review this that there will be a feeling on the players’ side that this is a proposal from which we can negotiate and try to reach a conclusion. But, we are not in a position to make any comments about it beyond that at this point.”
