The NHL Players' Association will meet on Monday with the NHL after spending most of the weekend reading through the league's 288-page proposal.
The NHLPA met internally on Sunday in New York after it wrapped up information sessions earlier in the day involving the Owners' latest CBA proposal.
According to TSN's Aaron Ward, it is reasonable to expect that the NHLPA will have players present at the meeting on Monday.
Ward also reports that lawyers and financial staff representing both sides met face-to-face on Sunday. They were involved in the review and clarification of the offer.
The NHL and the Players' Association will be meeting in person for the first time since they met with federal mediators on Dec. 12-13.
The lockout is in its 106th day. The league would like to have an agreement in place no later than January 11 with training camps to open the following day and the season set to start on January 19. The season needs to start by that date to accommodate a 48-game regular season which would see playoffs end in late June.
