The NHL’s second proposal to the players’ union produced some semantic arguments, which is part of the reason that CSNPhilly.com’s Tim Panaccio reports that the NHLPA might not counter tomorrow.
Instead, Panaccio reports that they “hope” to get something done by Friday.
Much like the last time the NHLPA gathered information for a counter, Donald Fehr & Co. claim that they are asking for more specifics from the league.
Pat Leonard expands on that point.
Getting more club-specific info might gel well with Fehr’s argument to increase revenue sharing for the league’s have-nots.
NHLPA counter-offer probably won’t be ready Thursday
