Team executive calls newest NHL offer a ‘tipping point’

The NHL on Thursday made a few significant tweaks to its most recent collective bargaining agreement offer, and one optimistic NHL team executive contacted this morning said he believes it will be a ‘’tipping point’’ in the negotiations.

The new offer, first reported by ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun), has the league willing to extend by one year its term limits on individual player contracts. Instead of limiting deals to five years, and increasing those deals to seven years if the player re-signs with his current club, the league has offered to increase its offer to 6 years/7years.
