Today could be the day that Gary Bettman and the NHL come to the table with a new CBA proposal. Although theres a strong chance nothing concrete may come from today's meeting it is expected that the newest proposal from the NHL will come sometime this week. Much is left to be cleared up as last we heard both parties were very much apart on agreements. In Coyotes news, the NHL extended the arena agreement with Glendale to give prospective owner, Greg Jamison and the NHL more time to complete the sale. More on the arena extension and CBA meetings after the jump. And just a reminder, the Stanley Cup will be in town Wednesday 29th at the Ice Den's bar and grill, 18 degrees. Full details here.
