NHL makes 50-50 revenue split offer

Bettman said that the offer, which splits hockey-related revenue at 50-50, is contingent upon a full season being played and suggested that the season could begin Nov. 2. He also said the League is not asking for salary rollbacks from the players. "We're focused on getting the season started on Nov. 2. That's what this offer was about."

The NHLPA is expected to address the proposal soon.

One extra game per 5 week period with finals to wrap in June means only 2 months between Hockey and Football!! I hope that the puck drops Nov 2 and we can get on with it.

I hope they reach an agreement soon.

On a side note, anyone see this yet? Funny stuff:

The general feeling/rumor is that they'll get something hammered out before the new year if not sooner. The NHL, owners and players don't want to lose the Winter Classic. It's been a huge ratings and money making monster for them all around.

You people are giving these people too much credit. Nothing has been agreed to.

No, but at least each side is making proposals and looking at them. Up to this point, neither side was willing to budge. Now they might be. It's still a long way to go, but it's a start.

Congress makes proposals and grandstands too. I will believe when i see it. Rich people suck.

Well, they gotta start somewhere. This proposal is a step in the right direction.

Good - I can't wait for the Caps to get my hopes up that they will get into finals this year...only to be let down in the first round when they lose like they always do

Looks like it might be an 82 game season after all.

I'm not really taking sides either way. I'm not following the situation close enough to know whose right or wrong in this instance. I'm not even that big of a fan to be honest. But it does effect my livelyhood, so I just want things settled so things can get back to normal at work.

So until Bettman remembers where he stashed his magic lamp and he can make his genie blink this all away, this will have to do.

There are no sides, imo. They're all greedy SObs. And hurt the pockets of many regular folks while they argue about who gets more millions.

It's ALWAYS about me. Everything. Always. Remember that. If I ain't happy, nobody's happy. Wink

This we can agree on.
