N.J. Devils make presence in NHL lockout talks

N.J. Devils make presence in NHL lockout talks

New Jersey has just gotten through a long, hot summer and a lot of sports fans are looking forward to cooling down with the return of the NHL.

When last the locals had looked, the New Jersey Devils advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals last season. Will they even get that chance this year?

No new negotiations are scheduled between the National Hockey League Players’ Association and the owners before their collective bargaining agreement expires at midnight on Saturday. The two sides exchanged proposals over two days of talks this week.

Players Association executive director Donald Fehr senses a danger, according to USA Today. Fehr says the players are willing to continue playing under the current contract while negotiations are taking place. Revenue sharing appears to be the major issue, as players are currently getting 57 percent. The league started by offering 43 percent, and moved up to 47 percent in its latest proposal.
