Having yet to submit a counteroffer and with less than six weeks before the NHL's collective bargaining agreement expires, NHL Players' Association executive director Don Fehr says that's still sufficient time to get a deal done.

For that to happen, both parties need to stay committed to negotiations and should not resort to "short-circuiting the process," Fehr said, when asked about the potential of a lockout.

Fehr spoke by phone Monday afternoon from Barcelona, where he met with about 40 NHL players. Fehr didn't have a timetable on when he anticipated presenting a counteroffer, because the union is still poring over 76,000 pages of financial information the NHL provided last week.

Negotiations resume on Tuesday, with Fehr expected back at the table by Thursday.

40 days left.

Fehr spoke to Chris Johnston today

Quote:
The globe-trotting head of the NHL Players’ Association is just about ready to counter the league’s initial proposal for a new collective bargaining agreement.

He’s likely to make at least part of his pitch during the scheduled talks in New York this week, Fehr told The Canadian Press on Monday.

“I think that there’s certainly a possibility — a reasonable one — that we’ll be in a position to make some further response,” Fehr said in an interview. “Whether we’ll be in a position to make an alternative proposal yet I don’t know.”

jessespector 2:16pm via Tweetbot for iOS Asked if NHL is afraid of a work stoppage, Bill Daly says only that they’re working to avoid one.


jessespector 2:14pm via Tweetbot for iOS Daly says the delivery of financial information to the NHLPA is ongoing, and union has most of the key stuff.




And hearing that word that NHLPA aren't ready to provide counter offer (yet).

ChrisBottaNHL 1:51pm via Twitter for BlackBerry® Don Fehr returns for meetings in NY Thurs and Fri. Sides not close on $ issues. This will be more apparent over the next week.


(But until NHLPA counter made public, how far apart are they?)

Looking at the issues involved with supplemental discipline. Sounds like the NHLPA may have suggested some more guidelines (rather than on a case by case basis) to determine fines, suspensions, appeal process, etc.

walsha: Talked to several NHL clients. They were commenting on continuous level of communication by NHLPA to members. Players strongly united.

(Parros over Fehr's shoulder a lot more intimidating than Daly behind Bettman )

Agent rant

walsha: Trust me when I tell you not 1 NHL player wants to be locked out. If it happens, look squarely at the NHL owners.
walsha: The owners got their deal last time with a salary cap, 24% rollback on all contracts+other major concessions.
walsha: I can tell you NHL players have always been reluctant to do anything to harm the game they love. Owners have always taken advantage of this.
walsha: Owners have always gone to the media and fans saying, "the players will kill the sport" while they demand major concessions from players.
walsha: NHL revenues are up 50% from the end of the lockout and the NHL's CBA proposal would rollback NHL salaries to 2002-03 levels.
walsha: The NHL has always used lower ticket prices to get fans on their side. Gary promised lower ticket prices in 2004-05.
walsha: The fact is ticket prices are governed by laws of supply and demand, they have no connection to player salaries.
walsha: If NHL gets everything they are demanding in CBA proposal, do you really believe ticket prices come down? Ha!
walsha: It would stand to reason if revenues up 50% and Gary's whole vision that players become "partners", player comp would be up as well.

Quote:
The roughly two-hour negotiating session Thursday included a presentation by the Players' Association directly related to the NHL's proposal on revenue sharing.

Fehr and Commissioner Bettman indicated the two sides need to bridge a significant gap in regards to revenue sharing. Commissioner Bettman said part of that gap includes "the significance and importance of revenue sharing."

Commissioner Bettman said that while the League is willing to increase its revenue sharing "in a variety of ways that we proposed," revenue sharing is not the key element of the negotiations for the League. He said that the owners' fundamental proposal "relates to the fact that we need to be paying out less in player costs."

"We're not close on that issue (revenue sharing)," Commissioner Bettman added, "and frankly revenue sharing is part of the bigger economic picture."

Larry Brooks: Bettman playing dirty

Quote:
The NHL does not have a player cost problem. The NHL has a small-market revenue problem, one its initial parody of a collective bargaining proposal to the NHLPA doesn’t begin to address.
On Tuesday, the NHLPA will present a proposal to the league that does address this core economic issue. The document is expected to represent a far-sighted vision for the NHL rather than the myopic approach in favor on Sixth Avenue, where it seems like 2004 all over again.

Donald Fehr made it clear the players see the world differently than the owners. Just how differently we'll know tomorrow.

David Pagnotta ‏@TheFourthPeriod
Fehr said PA has made "a series of responses to (the NHL) as to what our reactions to their proposal are" but haven't pitched their view yet
