Two news stories are out about the NHL labor situation today. First, the NHL has released the full text of its offer to the players on NHL.com. This is pretty much what was reported yesterday, although the issue of Hockey Related Revenue is as murky as ever, with the proposal saying it is "subject to mutual clarification", which has been a sticking point since day one.
Second, Donald Fehr has written a letter to NHLPA members, and parts of it were posted online via TSN. Some interesting quotes from that letter:
They want to "clarify" HRR definition and rules. It is not immediately clear what this means, but so far all of their ideas in this regard have had the effect of reducing HRR, and thereby lowering salaries.
And part of the close:
We do not yet know whether this proposal is a serious attempt to negotiate an agreement, or just another step down the road. The next several days will be, in large part, an effort to discover the answer to that question.
