    "The NHL has filed a counter-proposal to the NHL Players' Association offer, upping the salary cap to $42.5 million. The NHL has told NHLPA executive director Bob Goodenow that it's a final offer with no flexibility or room to negotiate and must have a response by 11 a.m. tomorrow."

    Score reports 42.5 cap proposal

    I don't think this will get it done.

    Final offer no flexibility

    TSN has the same story.

    The NHL has filed a counter-proposal to the NHL Players' Association offer, upping the salary cap to $42.5 million. The NHL has told NHLPA executive director Bob Goodenow that it's a final offer with no flexibility or room to negotiate and must have a response by 11 a.m. tomorrow.

    Who knows? Maybe Goodenow calls Bettman up at 10:00 tomorrow and says "How about $44 million?"

    We'll just have to see if it get immediately rejected or not.

    I am praying a deal is reached

    42.5 is plenty for the Players

    If anything the owners are giving up too much to the players

    I don't buy the fact that that's non-negotiable.

    I think they're trying to scare the PA into a better deal.

    If the PA comes back and says 45, the NHL might take it.

    Dennis Beyak did mention that if the players came back with a 45 million dollar offer tomorrow, he thinks the owners would accept. Cross your fingers people!!!!!! :help:

    This is giving too much to the players but heck, it's not that bad. However, if Bettman comes back on his word, drops his pants and gives more than that, I will curse him forever.

    I agree. This is obviously a negotiation tactic.

    TSN is saying that the PA must get an answer back to the NHL by 11am tommorow.

    There might still be a little wiggle room. The PA should make a public counter-offer.
