Hockey Talks to Resume

TORONTO () -- Contract talks between the National Hockey League and the NHL Players Association will resume Tuesday in New York, the Canadian Press reports.


At that time, it's expected NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will officially respond to an offer by the players' association to subsidize the so-called small-market teams.


Players have proposed a complex 5 percent tax on salaries and gate receipts which they say would raise $35 million for small-market teams. League officials are skeptical about the figure, fearing it would be significantly less.The proposal to end a stalemate in contract talks was reportedly made Friday during a five-hour session in New York.


A follow-up meeting was held Saturday between Bettman and NHLPA executive director Bob Goodenow.
