NHL and players union still trying to save season


NEW YORK (AP) -- The proposals are flying back and forth between the NHL and the players' association. Whether significant progress is being made in the process still isn't clear.

The league made a counteroffer Tuesday night in response to one it received from the players Monday, and now the NHL is waiting for another answer.

A full day of smaller group meetings wrapped up with a full bargaining session that lasted about 30 minutes Tuesday night. The union took the league's latest offer back to its headquarters to begin reviewing it.

Executive Director Donald Fehr said he will get back in touch with the NHL on Wednesday morning, adding that he anticipates the sides will get back together during the day. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said Monday the NHL has told the union a deal needs to be in place by January 11th so a 48-game season can begin eight days later.
