NHL Offers 50/50 Revenue Split to Players

Commissioner Gary Bettman told reporters in Toronto that this latest offer doesn’t include any salary rollbacks and is contingent on playing a compressed 82-game season that would begin on Nov. 2.

“It was done in the spirit of getting a deal done,” said Bettman, who explained teams would play an extra game every fifth week in a compressed schedule.
