NHLPA reportedly working on counteroffer

45 Comments

We said earlier it was hard to imagine the players would accept the NHL’s new CBA offer in its entirety. And apparently they won’t.

The NHLPA is holding a conference call this afternoon to update its members; however, Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos reports a counteroffer is already in the works.

It’s likely this roller-coaster still has a few loops and corkscrews to go before we learn if there’s going to be a season or not. The NHL has canceled games through Jan. 14, so time remains for more rejections and posturing.

Fun!

Update: Courtesy ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, here are the full details of the NHL’s latest offer.
