The National Hockey League and NHL Players' Association ended up their latest round of discussions on Tuesday after the union made its own proposal in an effort to work out a new collective bargaining agreement.
"It's clear to me (the NHLPA) didn't put (the proposal) together in an hour or two," NHL commissioner Gary Bettman told reporters on Tuesday, confirming the league would evaluate the proposal at their offices.
While Bettman did not reveal any details of the presentation, both sides will meet again on Wednesday morning. NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr and the player will address the media momentarily.
Fehr said Monday that the proposal will be an "alternative view" rather than a counter-offer to the initial plan put forward by the NHL last month.
The league's proposal called for lowering the players' share in revenue and introducing new contract restrictions, including a five-year cap on deals.
