The latest from Brooks:

The focus for the NHLPA in the face-to-face negotiations that are expected to begin here today or tomorrow should and must be on 2013-14. The unionís need in this regard is consistent with the needs of teams (even with one amnesty buyout) that will be pressed up against the NHLís proposed $60 million cap for next year that represents an immediate decrease of 14.53 percent unheard of in the history of hard-cap pro sports.
The NHL has no right to engineer a transition in which teams that have invested in building winners under the rules of the expired CBA are systematically stripped of their assets and thereby punishes those franchisesí season subscribers who essentially fund the league and have funded the lockout.
I don't know if they'll get Bettman up to $65 million, but he needs to come up somewhat from $60 million.
