NHL Proposes Expanded Revenue Sharing

NEW YORK (AP) NHL players and their union began examining the league's proposed expansion of revenue sharing as labor talks continued Tuesday.

NHLPA executive director Don Fehr says he can't make a counterproposal on the league's full package until his group receives and examines the requested team financial reports. The first batch 76,000 pages arrived late Monday night.

The meetings will continue Wednesday at the league offices in New York. More talks are scheduled next week when Fehr returns from a meeting with NHL players in Russia.

Fehr says players are "not enamored" with proposed limitations on contract lengths and a clause that would force them to wait longer before becoming unrestricted free agents.

Commissioner Gary Bettman says "ample time" remains to make a deal before the current CBA expires Sept. 15.
