The NHLPA didn’t fire back at the NHL today in New York when the two sides sat down for another round of CBA negotiations.
According to Sportsnet’s Michael Grange, there was no counter-proposal from the union in response to the NHL’s initial offer that was presented Friday. (Today’s meeting was spent reviewing the league’s proposal.)
The two sides plan to talk again Thursday and Friday.
NHLPA head Donald Fehr says the union could counter the NHL’s proposal or simply make its own initial offer unrelated to what the league proposed last week.
