New NHL offer is progress, but no clincher

The NHL made a somewhat surprising offer to its players on Tuesday in an attempt to end the lockout and kick-start the 2012-13 season on Nov. 2 -- which would represent approximately a three-week delay from its original Oct. 11 start.

According to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, the league is willing to split the Hockey Related Revenue, 50-50, with the players. In its first offer to the players in July, the league sought to share a much smaller percentage, possibly as little as 43 percent, according to how the NHL Players Association deciphered the offer.
