Encyclopedia > Collective bargaining agreement

The Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) is the contract between the NHL and the NHLPA that defines the structure of procedural, financial, and disciplinary relationships between the NHL, its teams, and its players.


The current CBA is set to expire on September 15, 2004. Rapidly increasing player salaries combined with financial difficulties among some NHL teams has led to a desire by the NHL and its team owners for a new CBA that stresses cost certainty, or a fixed relationship between revenues and player salaries. Disagreements and difficulties in negotiations with the NHLPA has raised the possibility of a lockout in the 2004-2005 season if a new agreement is not reached in time.
