Breaking : new extensive offer made by the NHL!

imagesCA3AFCFMNHL number 2, Bill Daly confirmed today that  the NHL made an offer  yesterday (Thursday ) to the NHLPA for a deal to be made by mid-January.

Indeed, in a very short statement, he said

“In light of media reports this morning, I can confirm that we delivered to the Union a new, comprehensive proposal for a successor CBA late yesterday afternoon. We are not prepared to discuss the details of our proposal at this time. We are hopeful that once the Union’s staff and negotiating committee have had an opportunity to thoroughly review and consider our new proposal, they will share it with the players. We want to be back on the ice as soon as possible.”
