The big news coming out of the NHL lockout talks on Tuesday was that the league had presented the players association with a new offer.
The offer, if the tweets from TSN insider Darren Dreger are to be believed, is a far cry from the original offer the NHL tabled prior to the lockout. The current offer seems like a very solid starting point and something that could, with some tweaking, save an 82-game 2012-13 NHL season.
The NHLPA held a conference call in the afternoon regarding the offer and the ball is in their court, but they don't have much time to decide on what their next step is going to be. According to Bob McKenzie, in order to salvage the 82-game season, the NHL will need to open training camps by October 26.
What follows are the key points that Dreger revealed throughout the day and my feelings on what they mean.
