As you might suspect, the same union source doesn’t think the NHLPA will agree to this deal.
This latest revelation comes after Canucks goaltender Cory Schneider said, according to the Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa, that the union was “not going to say yes just to say yes.”
As we previously reported, NHLPA boss Donald Fehr said that the new proposal was “different in some respects,” but he “doesn’t feel better or worse.”
The union intends to respond to this proposal. The two sides will meet again on Wednesday.
