The NHL and its players’ association will be meeting tomorrow, but it’s not about what you’re hoping for.
The two parties will meet in Toronto to discuss last year’s hockey-related revenue, which includes escrow payments for players. There is hope, however, that the meeting will spark other contact between the NHL and NHLPA about this season’s lockout.
The parties are not close in their main discrepancy. The NHLPA wants to continue to take in 57-percent of hockey related revenue, while the league wants the players to take in a sliding scale between 49 and 47 percent. How the two parties will meet in the middle remains to be seen.
