A new offer by the NHL … does this mean progress?

Well, it’s better than no offer and no movement and no discussion.

I think this is a sign that both sides know that the drop-dead date is coming, and the Jan. 2 NHLPA decertification date is out there (though my understanding is that they could decertify later).

Lots of info coming out on twitter—————>

No idea if it will be enough for the players to accept, or be the basis for a deal, or if it’s a take-it-or-leave-it proposal. Supposedly it’s comprehensive, with the max contract increased to six years (seven for signing own players), with language that allows teams to get under new cap (buyouts), and a 10-year CBA.

If this is a yes or no, I suspect one more no from the players. If it’s tweakable, maybe a deal is coming. I still suspect we go into January toward a drop-dead date.
