One of the owners’ big hangups with the players’ union is that they’ve yet to come back to them with another offer. That may soon be changing.
Andy Strickland of 590 AM in St. Louis reports the NHLPA is working on another proposal which they’re hoping to bring to the NHL soon. As of now, the two sides don’t have any talks scheduled and it wasn’t believed they’d meet again until next week.
The last time the owners and players met was last weekend but only non-financial topics were discussed. Without anything scheduled, it’s tough to say when things will get the opportunity to move forward (or backwards).
The fact the players’ union is working on something new, however, is a reason to be hopeful that perhaps things can get back on track to a settlement.
