NHL Proposes Expanded Revenue Sharing in Talks
NEW YORK (AP) -- NHL players and their union began examining the league's proposed expansion of revenue sharing as labor talks continued Tuesday.

NHLPA executive director Don Fehr says he can't make a counterproposal on the league's full package until his group receives and examines the requested team financial reports. The first batch-- 76,000 pages-- arrived late Monday night.

The meetings will continue Wednesday at the league offices in New York. More talks are scheduled next week when Fehr returns from a meeting with NHL players in Russia.

Fehr says players are ''not enamored'' with proposed limitations on contract lengths and a clause that would force them to wait longer before becoming unrestricted free agents.

Commissioner Gary Bettman says ''ample time'' remains to make a deal before the current CBA expires Sept. 15.
