Players get around 6,3% of the growth (27% over 5 years)
Escrow will determine where the final amounts to the players are in real money. But the HRR factor is the same.
Other issues are also compromised to an amicable solution include that salary arbitration rights continue in some form in the new system and that there are but minor changes to the age/experience qualifications for unrestricted free agency and restricted free agency (give the owners something here), participation by the NHL in the next 2 Olympic games is approved by the league, there are restrictions put into UFA contracts over length and bonuses, bonus cushion reinstalled, one contract per team is eligible for a compliance buyout within 6 weeks of CBA signing, players can still be demoted to minors, raise the minimum $$ of 2 way contracts substantially, close the college loophole a little by extending the signing deadline until a player officially should graduate from school...
But will this stop the bleeding for the poorer clubs- even with $220 M alloted in revenue sharing? Methinx not - need some replacements of host cities imo to stop bleeding and maximize returns in better hockey areas
Maybe move Phoenix => Las Vegas
One of NJD/NYI moves to => Kansas City, Portland, Halifax or Seattle
New Canadian teams put in Quebec City and Hamilton area. Face it, the market is there. Not in the desert...
32 teams (by 2016)
16 teams per conference - 8 teams per Division (6 inter division games per annum =42, 3 inter conference games =24, 16 games against other conference teams = 16, TOTAL 82 games). Realignment of course takes place succesively
Bettman is a goner - especially as the current makeshift of the league is his pet peave baby
