    Sportsnet has learned the league will come off their hard stance of $42.5 million but will not accept the union's latest offer of $49 million.

    THIS IS TRUE.

    From the Web:

    "Sportsnet has learned the league will come off their hard stance of $42.5 million but will not accept the union's latest offer of $49 million."

    IF true (big if at this point)

    the players better come down from $49 mill

    hey i'm more pro player than pro owner but if the players refuse to meet in the middle, how can i support them?

    I think now the deal is done...

    If they(NHL) are so willing, and let's face it both sides know they need a deal, to move after saying this is it take it or leave it, well this deal tells me the NHL has a deal in place.

    I say they've moved to... you guessed it, 45.5 million. The Association would be dumb not to take it.

    I think they are just trying to convince a potential judge that they are negotiating in good faith. If you want to declare an impasse, you must argue that you negotiated in good faith, but still could not get a deal done.

    I'll believe them when it's signed.

    Who else thinks that Goodenow will come up with his last most generous offer of $47m. Just because he thinks Bettman has been bluffing all along. Then of course Bettman would say no deal.

    Not only does the NHLPA need to come down to $45 mil or so, that needs to be a HARD cap, not a soft cap like the $49 mil offer.

    Well this is the best news, I've heard all morning, and it may be a glimmer of hope, but they sure don't have much time! C'mon guys, clock is ticking, go with $45 million!

    The NHL will not go to 45 million...it will be more around 43.5 but with a bottom rung at $23 million. And it has to be a hard cap.
