When representatives from the NHL and NHLPA reconvene in Manhattan on this 16th day of the owners’ lockout, the conversation will pick up where it left off on Saturday, when the parties attempted to clarify the definition of Hockey Related Revenue, a subject obviously and perhaps ominously not yet settled.
Several individuals who have been briefed on the matter told The Post the league had sought to introduce clarifications favorable to the owners’ collective bottom line.
One source said the NHL “was not adamant about it.
” But a player who participated on yesterday’s NHLPA conference call — during which the athletes received an overall update that included a review of the weekend talks — was not happy about it.
“Over the weekend, they just wanted to put more peanuts in their pockets,” the player told The Post.
The NHL is funny. They backed off the changes they wanted to make to HRR on September 12 but they are looking at other ways of grabbing more of the pie.
