    Tuesday February 15, 2005 - New York (PC) - A a few hours of the probable advertisement of the cancellation of the season 2004-2005 of the national League of Hockey, the Association of the players would have subjected, late Monday evening, an offer of wage ceiling which would however have been rejected by the leaders of the circuit.

    According to what learned the English network from NTR, the offer of the players comprised a wage ceiling being established to 52 million $ US per team. She would have been proposed in the Niagara Falls, in the State of New York, by Ted Saskin, the representative of the players, with its with respect to the national League, Bill Daly.

    Never, up to now, the Association of the players had not adhered to the principle of the wage ceiling.

    This offer constituted a response to a proposal has been just tended by the league, made up of a wage ceiling tight to 40 million $ US and of a device binding the wage bill of the players to the incomes of the national League.

    The proposal of the players would have also comprised a reduction of 24 percent of the wages being reproduced on the contracts in force, just as a modification of the threshold of imposition of the teams on their wage bills.

    In spite of these developments, it remains expected tomorrow that the police chief of the national League, Gary Bettman, announces the cancellation of the season 2004-05 at the time of a press conference, afternoon, in New York. This advertisement was to occur today, but it was pushed back 12 midnight because of the ultimate meeting of yesterday between Bill Daly and Ted Saskin.

    Yesterday, at the end of the evening, the national League affirmed that no progress had been recorded after five months of lockout.

    The national League of hockey would become the first professional circuit in North America to entirely cancel its regular season.

    The Fan590 is reporting the Ottawa Sun story that says that Roenick, Iginla, and Pronger are pushing hard for Goodenow to propose a $42m cap. You can read the article at http://www.canoe.ca/NewsStand/OttawaSun/Sports/2005/02/15/931193-sun.html. Although it is Garrioch, he may actually be on to something (hey, even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and again). 590 just had Mike Brophy, a senior writer from the hockey news, who says that Iginla and Pronger were indeed the driving force in getting the negotations going again yesterday.

    NHLPA
    A cap of $52 million but with provisions for teams to spend as much as 10 per cent more than that on three occasions in a six-year period, with a luxury tax incorporated. The luxury tax rates would be 25 per cent on $40-44 million; 50 per cent on $44-48 million; 75 per cent on $48-52 million and 150 per cent on $52-$57.2 million.

    More from Sportsnet:

    "Sportsnet has learned that the National Hockey League is considering making a counter proposal off the NHLPA's initial salary cap offer of $52 million, perhaps as early as today.

    One source close to the negotiations believes a deal can be reached now that the philosophical differences have been bridged, though there is still considerable work to be done.

    "It's just a matter of crunching numbers now," a source said. "Now that linkage is out of the equation, the players don't have to worry about the league's books and trusting their numbers."

    "As of noon Tuesday, there had not been any meetings between the two sides, although it is believed a counter proposal from the league could come later in the day.""

    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

    If it's the one published on the TSN site, I don't see anything "condescending" at all. I find it actually very civil, putting the last few cards down on the table.
