Fehr is sharp. He crafted an offer which addresses every stated concern the owners have. He then pays for it with a restriction on raises, assuming NHL revenues go up by over 2% per year. And then he tops it off by forcing the owners to do what they should have done last summer: Get some revenue sharing happening.

There may be a "devil in the details", but the overall plan seems like a good blueprint for the future.

IMO the debate will be amongst the owners. I am guessing that half the teams (at least) could easily live with the NHLPA offer.
