NEW YORK — NHL players gave management a new proposal Wednesday that the union said left sides less than $40 million apart annually over a five-year contract.
After a day away from bargaining for internal discussions, union officials and nine players were at the NHL office for an hour. There was little optimism as they took a 90-minute break. The two sides resumed discussions early Wednesday afternoon.
“We did give them the proposal,” union head Donald Fehr said. “They indicated they’re going to have a response to us a little later on.”
On the 67th day of a lockout that already has led to the cancellation of more than a quarter of the regular season, Fehr said players made a percentage-based proposal, which he said reflected the economic impact the work stoppage had caused.
“We have moved far more than halfway,” Fehr said. “It is about as good as we can do.”

In their latest proposal, the NHLPA moved closer to what the NHL is looking for in the collective bargaining agreement. But it apparently wasn't good enough as the league rejected the proposal. "We've moved far more than halfway, and our expectation is the NHL's going to be willing to meet us if they want to reach an agreement," NHLPA executive director...
