A few days ago,Daly indicated there were close on some of other issues. Tentative agreements are in place. The core economic issue of HRR % and then contracts are the two big issues. The NHL doesn't like the contracts which they feel cheat the system. Looking at what the players in the other 3 leagues get and the type of contracts they get,the NHL has a point. NBA has contract term limits. 5 years to re-sign your players and 4 years for a free agent. The NFL contracts are non-guaranteed. The signing bonus money is guaranteed. They might guarantee a smaller % in addition to the bonus money. You don't see crazy long term contracts in MLB. There are no 13 year SPCs in MLB.
PA deal not perfect obviously. One thing I do agree with league is they must have contract term cap. Even if it's eight years or whatever.
