TORONTO (AP) - NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says he is ``thoroughly disappointed'' with the union's response to the league's latest collective agreement proposal.
Bettman says the NHL Players' Association made three counter-proposals, but none that were acceptable to the league.
The league's offer - which calls for a full 82-game season -would have hockey-related revenues split 50-50 between owners and players.
Bettman says none of the union's proposals approach the 50-50 mark and calls the offers a step back in negotiations.
The commissioner is still hopeful the league can have a full season, but time is running out to make that happen.
Bettman says no new talks are immediately scheduled.
