NHL, union work on solution to labor strife

Posted: November 20, 2012

Representatives from the NHL and the players' union met Monday night in New York, trying to find common ground that will end their labor war.

Bill Daly, the NHL's deputy commissioner, said the league asked the NHL Players' Association to submit a full proposal on how to divide hockey-related revenue. That could be done Tuesday.

"We are going to think about what was said and think about our next step," said Donald Fehr, executive director of the players' union.

Daly told reporters that owners would not accept a proposal that guarantees an amount of revenue to players, compared to a percentage of the pie.

The league wants to settle the revenue split before tackling player-contract issues.

The lockout reached its 65th day on Monday; games have been canceled through Nov. 30.
