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.
