The reality is that the NHLPA's lux tax offer was like $0.20 per dollar over $50 million. That won't make sufficient difference. Maybe $2.00 per dollar over $50 million might work.
The reality was the NHLPA's offer was a starting point. Its called negotiation. Start with the PA's offer on one side and Burke's proposal on the other. Something would get done.
And to be honest, if you want total parity, there's really not that far to go. You might say those fluke teams are never heard from again, but that is parity.
