NHL Makes its Case, Now NHLPA's Turn
TORONTO (AP) -- The NHL finished presenting a majority of its proposals in labor negotiations, and is waiting for a response from the NHL Players' Association.

Commissioner Gary Bettman said a ''vast bulk'' of the league's case is on the table after the two sides met for the second consecutive day at the union's headquarters in Toronto. He said the presentation Wednesday covered the ''nuts and bolts'' of what the league is seeking, and went beyond the initial proposal made two weeks ago.

NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr says the players will analyze what's been presented. Fehr has already said the union is preparing to present a counter-offer within two weeks.

The sides will meet again Thursday, before talks shift to New York next week.

The collective bargaining agreement expires Sept. 15.
