NHL Presents New Offer To NHLPA
Buy Blackhawks Tickets
By Jay Zawaski-
According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the NHL has presented a new CBA offer to the NHLPA in hopes of ending the NHL Lockout.
In the new offer, the NHL has moved on several key issues. ESPN’s Pierre Lebrun does a nice job of breaking down the details of the new deal.
Here’s a look at his breakdown:
- Term limit on player contracts moves to six years from the five years NHL asked in previous offers (seven years if you’re re-signing your own player).
- Year-to-year salary variance moves from 5 percent (NHL’s previous offers) to 10 percent.
- Each team will be allowed one compliance buyout before the 2013-14 season that will not count against the salary cap but will count against the players’ share.
- The Make Whole provision stays at $300 million.
