The NHL Players' Association is expected to deliver a new CBA proposal on Wednesday, reports TSN. The two sides met on Monday night for 90 minutes and the league asked for a comprehensive offer on revenue shares and player contract rights. The union is working internally on Tuesday and could meet with the league on Wednesday.

"We've never heard a full proposal from them," NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said. "We've heard their proposal on economics, they're still suggesting that they're moving in our direction on economics… We'd like to hear it all together."

The players' association and league will also have to decide how to pay for damage caused by the lockout--the NHLPA's most recent offer on Nov. 7 did not include the mechanism to account for reduced revenue as a result of a shortened 2012-13 season. The lockout is into its 10th week and all regular season games through Nov. 30 have been cancelled. The sides considered taking a break from negotiations last week, but the NHLPA encouraged continued meetings.

"It's hard for me to see how you make an agreement if you aren't talking and so you talk," said NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr. "Sometimes it doesn't lead anywhere, perhaps very often it doesn't lead anywhere, but if you aren't talking it's 100 per cent sure it doesn't lead anywhere."

According to USA Today's Kevin Allen, talks will resume on Wednesday at 10 a.m.
