NHL Releases Details of Latest Offer to NHLPA
TORONTO (AP)--The NHL has released details of its latest collective bargaining proposal to the public.

In an unprecedented move, the league has published the documents it handed over to the NHL Players' Association on Tuesday in an attempt to save a full 82-game season and end the third lockout of Commissioner Gary Bettman's tenure.

The first document is the 10-point offer and the second includes a detailed explanation of the proposal. Both documents are published in full on the league's website.

As NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr said Tuesday, the offer is for six years, with a mutual option for a seventh, and includes a 50-50 split in revenue. It also includes a provision to ensure players receive all of the money they've been promised on existing contracts.

The NHLPA is expected to offer a response to the proposal when the sides meet again on Thursday. The season, under this proposal, would start on Nov. 2.
