Two days after the Bettman and the NHL proposed a new collective bargaining agreement, the NHL shut down the NHLPA's three counter proposals.
Reports indicate that the players were willing to take the 50-50 proposal, but wanted the owners to acknowledge their current contracts as well. The owners wanted none of this.
What a shame. Two days ago I was feeling very optimistic, now it looks like this is going to get dragged out even more since the weekend starts tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed, hopefully something will happen soon.
