Note: The NHLPA Is Showing Some Urgency

According to a tweet from Darren Dreger, the players are starting to show some urgency in trying to get a new CBA done.

He says that the PA is working on questions that the NHL has asked them about their stance on 50/50, guaranteed share of money rather than a percentage, make whole and contract issues such as front loaded deals that drop in salary at the end.

Larry Brooks writes in the NY Post that the players are believed to be looking at a scenario where the NHLPA brings their share down to 50% by the third or fourth year.

He also says that the PA appears willing to concede on front loaded contracts.
