The players’ union hasn’t presented a counteroffer to the NHL’s three-week old initial proposal. The current CBA is set to expire on Sept. 15, but according to an AP report via CSN Bay Area, NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr doesn’t have a timetable for when the players will respond with their own offer.
Still, Fehr thinks there’s still time to get something done. The key, he feels, is for both sides to stick with the negotiations not do anything that might short-circuit the process.
In the past, Fehr has suggested that Sept. 15 doesn’t have to be a “magic date.”
“There’s nothing that happens on Sept. 15 if we don’t have an agreement, provided nobody says we’re going to go on strike or says we’re going to lock the doors,” Fehr previously stated.
The two sides are expected to meet on Tuesday for the first of four days worth of CBA talks.
