Various reports say the NHL has submitted a new collective bargaining agreement proposal to the NHL Players' Association, with revisions on some key issues.
The NHL's proposal calls for a limit of six years on contracts -- up from five -- as well as an increase in the amount a salary can change from one season to the next of 10 percent, up from five percent. Also, one contract buyout that would not be applied to a team's salary-cap ceiling would be allowed.
The most noteworthy change probably is maximum contract lengths, since deputy commissioner Bill Daly described the league's five-year offer as the hill it would "die on."
Under the latest NHL proposal, there still would be a seven-year limit when teams are re-signing one of their own players.
