Yes, I will go on record saying those numbers are fact, for two reasons....

1) If the PA did agree to a cap, then it would quickly be determined what the actual league revenues are and those revenues would be made public. If those numbers were significantly off, Bettman's reputation would be ruined. He wouldn't allow that to happen to himself.

2) Salary caps are determined by a percentages. 65% of anything higher than 1.93 is higher than 65% of 1.93, meaning a cap on a higher amount of revenues would be more desireable to the PA than a cap on 1.93.
