NHL players present new taxation proposal
TORONTO (AP) - Hockey play-
ers, making what may be the final at-
tempt to ensure a full NHL season,
presented the owners Monday with a
new taxation proposal.
The owners, who postponed the
start of the season from Oct. 1 to Oct.
15, will consider the proposal today

when they meet in New York.
"The issue will be brought back to
the governors for an update, and we'll
have a discussion and then a decision,"
NHILcommissionerGary Bettman said
after a 3 1/2-hour meeting.
The new proposal calls for a top
taxation rate on salaries from 5.5 per-
cent to 7 percent. Players say this would
create a $20 million pool for small-
marketteams, $1 million more than the
NHL's proposal. They say the pro-
posal would give the small-market
teams revenue of 72 percent of the
"It is something that goes against
our grain," said Toronto Maple Leafs'
Mike Gartner, president of the NHL
Players Association. "I hope the own-
ers see that, but I do not know how they
will react to it."
Fifty-seven games will have been
postponed through Tuesday. Bettman
has said the league would consider
starting the season Saturday if there
were significant movement toward a
collective bargaining agreement.
"In today's proposal,we responded
to all of the stated concerns of the NHL
andmade significant moves that should
form the basis for a new agreement,"
union head Bob Goodenow he said.
"We have gone the extra mile to get an
agreement. We have made today's pro-
posal to bring an end to the lockout and
play hockey, not because we are inter-
ested in taxing player salaries."
Bettman says if the season starts
this weekend, teams will play full 84-
The players' plan, responding to a
suggestion by owners, reduced the tax
on gate receipts from 5.5 percent to 3
percent. The payroll tax would be ap-
plied at graduated rates to the top 16
clubs by revenue.
