There may be light at the end of the tunnel.

The NHL has sent over another proposal to the players association today, in hopes of ending the 104 day lockout.

The sides haven’t spoken since December 13th after failure with a federal mediator.

Owners hope this proposal will do the charm.

“We delivered to the union a new, comprehensive proposal for a successor CBA,” NHL executive Bill Daly said in a statement Friday. “We are not prepared to discuss the details of our proposal at this time. We are hopeful that once the union’s staff and negotiating committee have had an opportunity to thoroughly review and consider our new proposal, they will share it with the players. We want to be back on the ice as soon as possible.”

According to reports, the league proposed raising the limit of individual free agent contracts to six years up from five and seven years if they are signing their own player. They also raised the salary variance from you year to another 10 percent and one compliance buyout for the 2013-14 season that wouldn’t count towards the cap but would be included in the overall players share of income.

All games through January 14th have been canceled, including the Winter Classic and All-Star game, even a visit to CarbobSports.ag. The thought is that this is the latest the NHL can continue the lockout without cancelling the season.

No response from the NHLPA on this proposal as of yet.
