Report: Players willing to receive percentage of HRR

59 Comments

Today in New York, in what one observer is calling “a big move in the owners’ direction,” the NHLPA has reportedly proposed that the players’ share of hockey-related revenue be calculated as a percentage, as it was under the last CBA.

The NHL recently expressed frustration with the union’s demands for a guaranteed dollar amount going towards the players. The league has also indicated it won’t accept such a proposal.

Of course, we don’t know what percentage of HRR the NHLPA has requested, so don’t get too excited yet. The devil, as they say, is in the details.
