NHLPA conf call has ended. Nothing certain, but a counter proposal is expected in next 24-48 hrs.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) October 16, 2012
Darren Dreger of TSN is reporting that there will likely be a counter proposal in the next 24-48 hours. This doesn't kill the possibility of a deal getting done. Counters are expected. The good part is they're talking about the substantial issues.
