NHLPA memo calls offer a “major move in the owners’ direction”

22 Comments

In a memo to the players, NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr shared details of today’s union proposal to the NHL.

Fehr calls the offer a “major move in the owners’ direction” that leaves the two sides $182 million apart over five years, and that gap is “undisputed.”

The memo also outlines the players’ offer with regards to issues like revenue sharing, back-diving contracts, burying contracts in the minors and discipline.

Clearly the NHLPA wanted the details of its proposal to go public. Now it’s the NHL’s turn to feel the pressure.
