The NHL season officially begins with the start of the season on March 13.
However, the league has been playing a game of cat and mouse with the NHLPA over how it wants to handle the lockout and its impact on the league’s players.
The NHLPA, which is led by President Donald Trumps son, is currently negotiating with the league to resolve the lockout.
The talks are being conducted at the league headquarters in the Los Angeles area, and the two sides have agreed to an agreement that includes salary cap reductions and an increase in games per season.
The players’ union wants to increase the number of regular season games, but the league is trying to keep the number the same, which would increase the salaries of its top players, as well as those who don’t play enough games.
Players would also be allowed to participate in their own mini-camp.
Players also want a raise in the number and amount of games they can play in.
However the NHL has said that is not in the best interest of the players.
As part of the negotiations, the two parties have agreed on a salary cap for the next three years, with a cap floor of $69 million.
Players can opt out of the current contract if they so choose.
The salary cap would then be set at a number of levels for each of the next five years, based on the current cap.
If a player opts out, the player is entitled to $5.5 million of the $6.5 billion cap in the next two seasons, while players on injured reserve are eligible for a further $1.3 million.
The lockout has cost the NHL millions of dollars, with players having to play games for little to no money.
The league and players want to avoid the potential loss of money by increasing the number that players can play each season.
The two sides are scheduled to have their first meeting on March 22 in Montreal, where they will discuss the salary cap.
The next meeting will be on April 13 in Toronto.
