NHL Presents ‘Comprehensive’ Offer

The NHL has made a new proposal to the NHL Players’ Association with time ticking toward a canceled season, the league has confirmed.

In a statement released Friday, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly called the offer a “comprehensive proposal for a successor CBA,” saying it was delivered to the union late Thursday afternoon.

“We are not prepared to discuss the details of our proposal at this time,” Daly said in the statement. “We are hopeful that once the union’s staff and negotiating committee have had an opportunity to thoroughly review and consider our new proposal, they will share it with the players. We want to be back on the ice as soon as possible.”

A player who requested anonymity told ESPN.com earlier Friday the offer advanced what was on the table for term limits for player contracts, salary variance and buyouts.
