Doesn't this feel like the place the NHL wanted to end up? I mean the starting point was 43% against the PA's current 57% share. Ultimately they figured they would meet in the middle at 50/50.
I found this interesting:
http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/85...elated-revenueA source with knowledge of the offer told ESPNNewYork.com that the players' primary concern -- that their current contracts are honored -- is addressed in the proposal. To protect the contracts already in the books, there is a mechanism in place in the league's latest offer to defer payments based on future growth, according to the source
Does this mean contracts are rolled back; however if league growth continues at the pace the PA was advocating it would, roll backs would be paid back? Am I misunderstanding?
