Fehr says NHL rejects union's proposal

Donald Fehr says the NHL has rejected the proposal put forth by the NHL Players' Association.

"We were advised in a voicemail message that the move that we made was unacceptable," Fehr told reporters in New York.

Fehr said the NHL has taken some of its offers off the table and will not negotiate tonight or Friday.

"I think this deal should be close if they are reasonable and acknowledge the concessions we have made," Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller said via text. "Can't help their reaction. We feel like it should have been taken as a step toward ending this. How many concessions can we make?"
