The NHL has offered the Players' Association a 50-50 split in revenue in a bid to end the current lock-out.

The NHL season should have started last week but a disagreement over the split in revenue between the league and the players led to a lock-out.

The NHL originally offered a 57-43 split in their favour, but they have now proposed an equal share.

Players' association executive director Donald Fehr said the offer is for six years, with a mutual option for a seventh.

It also includes a provision to ensure players receive all of the money they have been promised on existing contracts.

The NHLPA is expected to offer a response to the proposal when the sides meet again on Thursday.

The season, under this proposal, would start on November 2, and would preserve the 82-game season.
