It’s not quite the equivalent of a must-win game, but today is still a huge day in the CBA negotiations.
This afternoon in Toronto, two days after the league offered the players a 50-50 split of hockey-related revenue (whatever that may be) in hopes of ending the lockout, the NHLPA is expected to present some sort of a response to the NHL.
At the moment, the only thing we can say for certain is the union won’t show up with a signed agreement.
What we don’t know is if the players push back with something the league is willing to work off, or if the response is so unacceptable to the NHL that negotiations screech to a halt.
The latter scenario would all but doom an 82-game schedule.
