Just as NHL stars are getting comfortable overseas and some players are considering playing a world tour during the lockout, signs that the players and owners might be coming to an agreement are on the horizon.
It was announced on Tuesday that the newest NHL proposal would include a 50-50 split of hockey-related revenue. If all goes as planned, and the NHLPA agree to the proposal, a full 82-game slate of regular season games could be played, with the season beginning on Nov. 2.
While the news shows signs of good things to come, there are still a great deal of discussions that need to take place before a new CBA is set.
TSN’s Darren Dreger spoke with NESN Daily on Tuesday about the logistics of the new proposal and how it now shifts the pressure onto the NHLPA to get a deal done. See more in the above video.
