Some of the economic details about the NHL’s proposal have reportedly surfaced. Among other things, the current proposal would reportedly lower the 2012-13 salary cap to $58 million.
“We need to get on the same page on the economics,” Bettman said in an NHL.com report, “and we’re hoping that by virtue of the proposal we made today that there will be some traction and that there will be a framework for the negotiation.”

The two sides will meet again today and there are meetings scheduled through Friday. Bettman is hoping the union will respond today.
Despite tough fight, Stars hand Wild their sixth straight loss
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
