“We actually don’t think that meeting on the other issues while the main economic issues remain uncertain would be particularly constructive or productive in terms of resolving those issues,” deputy commissioner Bill Daly wrote in an email to The Post.
“A lot has already been done and most of those issues are teed up for resolution if the main issues can be addressed.”
The Post has learned the NHL proposals feature a “management rights” clause under which the league would assume unilateral power over issues including realignment, scheduling and playoff format.
The union refused to give its assent last year to the league’s proposed realignment plan for 2012-13 that would have created a four-conference (division) format, with attendant changes in scheduling and playoff structure.
Interesting comment by Daly. I am sure both sides know where each sides stands on certain issues and where they can find a middle ground. The main issue is the "core economics".
