TORONTO -- Let the serious negotiations begin. After more than a month with no new offers being tabled in collective bargaining talks, the NHL breathed new life into the process Tuesday with a proposal that could kick-start some significant discussions. It calls for a 50-50 split of revenues between owners and players and includes a deferred salary plan designed to ensure that players would receive all the money theyve been promised in existing contracts. On top of that, the deal was drawn up with an eye to starting a full 82-game regular season Nov. 2. "We have about nine or 10 days to get this all ... signed, sealed and delivered," said commissioner Gary Bettman, who called the proposed deal "long-term." A lot will need to be accomplished over that period. However, the unexpected proposal offered fans the first real hint of hope since the lockout began Sept. 15. The sides have met regularly since that time, but their discussions were largely limited to secondary issues. The league eventually grew tired of waiting for a new offer from the NHL Players Association and decided to try to move things forward with a proposal of its own. Donald Fehr, the NHLPAs executive director, spent Tuesday afternoon reviewing the lengthy document and held an evening conference call with about 60 players. His initial reaction to the offer was that it could provide something to work with. "I would like to believe that it will be an excellent starting point and we can go forward and see if there is a deal to be made," said Fehr. The new offer was greeted with cautious optimism by locked-out players who have had to secure their own ice time to stay in shape during the lockout. Following an informal skate in Vancouver on Tuesday, Canucks goaltender Cory Schneider expressed hope that labour peace could finally be on the horizon. "Both sides were waiting for somebody to make the next move," said Schneider. "For them to make a move towards us, it at least signals that they are serious about negotiating and getting started. Up until this point, we werent fully convinced of that. This is obviously a good step towards that." It wasnt immediately clear how willing the league is to negotiate off its latest offer. The NHLs previous proposal called for the players revenue share to fall to 47 per cent and tabled a number of restrictive rules governing contracts. According to a source, the only one that remains in Tuesdays proposal is a maximum contract length of five years. The new offer also calls for unrestricted free agency to come into effect at age 28 or after eight years of service -- one year later than the last CBA -- and keeps entry-level deals at three years. Neither side had made a formal proposal since Sept. 12, and this one came with a heightened sense of urgency from Bettman. The league figures Nov. 2 is the latest it could start a condensed 82-game regular season that would see the Stanley Cup awarded before the end of June. "If we didnt do it now, if we didnt put an offer on the table that we thought was fair and could get us playing hockey ... then it probably wasnt going to happen for a while," said Bettman. "Its done in the spirit of getting a full season in." If the union were to accept the 50-50 split, players would take a financial hit. Based on last years league-wide revenues of US$3.3 billion, they would be giving up $231 million annually if their share of that money drops by seven per cent. However, it might be a concession theyre willing to make as part of a larger deal. "To Bettman, the percentage is the biggest part," said Schneider. "To us, its one of the few big parts. Contracting and revenue-sharing are other issues for us. But (the percentage) is a hurdle that has to be overcome at some point. So its good that were heading in the right direction." The NHLs third lockout in 18 years has lasted 31 days and already forced the league to push the season back two weeks from its scheduled start of Oct. 11. Deputy commissioner Bill Daly estimated last week that it had cost about US$250 million in lost revenue. The new league offer came one day after the sports blog Deadspin reported the NHL had hired market research firm Luntz Global to conduct a focus group to help shape its message during the lockout. The companys founder, Frank Luntz, said in a statement that he was trying to gauge how fans felt about the work stoppage. The best public relations for both sides would come from striking a deal and with a new proposal on the table, there is some optimism that could be coming sooner than later. "What our hope is is that after we review this that there will be a feeling on the players side that this is a proposal from which we can negotiate and try and reach a conclusion," said Fehr. -- With files from Monte Stewart in Vancouver.

Then, he pulled out that blue T-shirt with a white "D," and, finally, it became clear. The prized prospect from Chicagos Simeon Career Academy, one of the most highly touted recruits in years, is headed to Duke to play for Mike Krzyzewski. Parker made the announcement in front of a national TV audience Thursday, in his high school gym, surely delighting Blue Devils fans. A 6-foot-8 forward with the ability to nail jumpers from just about any spot when hes not throwing down vicious dunks, Parker cant sign his letter of intent until April 17. But he made his intentions clear with one highly anticipated oral commitment. Michigan State, Florida, Stanford and Brigham Young also made his top five and caps from each school lined a table next to the podium. But he said it really came down to three schools, with the Gators and Spartans right there with the Blue Devils. In the end, he chose to play for Krzyzewski for at least a year before making what many believe will ultimately be a jump to the NBA. "Duke is always going to be a team in the tournament," he said. "You cant go wrong at the program and most importantly, the long-term investment. I feel like if I go there, I can get a good degree. I can also stay close to home where its easily accessible to my parents, my family. Its not too far away. Coach K, thats one of the best coaches ever, and I wanted to be able to experience the things that he has next year." Parker said he might play two or three seasons in college. Either way, he vowed to get a degree. He also said he didnt decide on a school until about 1 p.m. Central, and he apparently kept his parents in the dark until just before he made his announcement. His mom Lola said Jabari whispered his decision to her and her husband, Sonny, as they were walking into the gym. A few minutes later, he pulled out that Duke T-shirt, drawing a standing ovation from the crowd packing the bleachers behind the podium. Parker committed to join a program next season will lose two key frontcourt players -- seniors Mason Plumlee and Ryan Kelly -- from a team that earlier this week rose to No. 1 for the first time since February 2011. Parker figures to fit right in on a talented group of players that will include Quinn Cook, whos expected to be in his second year as the starting point guard, and returns pure shooter Andre Dawkins, whos expected back after redshirting this season. Turning down the other programs, particularly Michigan State, wasnt easy, particularly after coach Tom Izzos final pitch Wednesday. Simeon coach Robert Smith was so impressed he said, "If he was recruiting me yesterday, I would have committed." Parker didnt. He saw a potential for controversy with him and the Spartans Branden Dawson playing the same position. Instead, hes headed to Duke even though he said that was his "worst" on-campus visit. "I didnt do what I wanted to do -- thats be a kid," he said. "But I know being at college, its all business. Thats what they wanted to do, to show me. I know I didnt have a good time, but they just wanted to tell me, prepare for me and give me a little bit of a taste of how its going to be in college." Lola Parker said she was more interested in Krzyzewsski the person than the Krzyzewski the coaching icon.dddddddddddd. She mentioned his character, his discipline and his final home visit on Tuesday. "The first time Coach K came in, he stood up and showed Jabari where his foot should be on an offensive or a defensive play," she said. "He showed Jabari where his arms should be. This guy doesnt sit down. We kind of laughed about it, and it was the same thing Tuesday. I moved my coffee table to the side to make sure he had room right there to get up." Given Jabari Parkers skills, its easy to see why just about every major program was interested in him. Parker just might be the greatest prospect to come out of Simeon, and thats saying something considering Derrick Rose played there. All he did was go on to become the MVP with the hometown Bulls. As for Parker, his credentials to this point sure are impressive. He received the Gatorade Boys Basketball Player of the Year award after leading Simeon to its third straight state championship while averaging 19.5 points and 8.9 rebounds as a junior. His father played six seasons with the Golden State Warriors in the NBA after starring at Chicagos Farragut Career Academy. "He has a gift and he has whats called It," Sonny Parker said. Religion also plays a big role in Jabaris life. He is a devout Mormon, just like his mom, and he has talked about going on a mission. Hes not sure if he will do that, but he did make one thing clear: He plans to get his degree. Now that hes made his college choice and assuming he doesnt have a change of heart, Jabari can focus on leading Simeon to another state title and getting his conditioning back after being slowed by a broken right foot. The injury over the summer caused him to push back some recruiting trips and delay his decision rather than commit during the early signing period last month. Hes also missed a game this week because hes trying to work his way back from the injury, an obstacle for a player rarely stopped on the court, but this moment was years in the making. Lola Parker recalled in an interview at the familys house earlier this year that she could see it when Jabari, the youngest of seven children, was in the second grade going against the fourth and fifth-graders in a league run by Sonny, who established a foundation to help inner-city youth in Chicago after he retired. Scholarship offers started rolling in when Jabari was in the sixth grade, and now, its not uncommon for him to get mobbed by fans at games, even though theyre often not from Simeon. Usua
