The issue is in the players' hands now. Any failure to reach a deal by Saturday is 100% the fault of the NHLPA.
or that issue is dumb because it still leaves the big problem that this CBA has. with out a system for teams that are in markets like Florida or Carolina or any other market where they struggle to generate revenue, we are still going to have the same damn problem.

Revenues go up so does the cap floor and those teams that have the player generated bandaid will go back to losing money, while the teams who are raking in are going to rake in more.

NHL is not doing anything to address this issue, i doubt players will agree to any deal that does not address this issue.

Now if the owners do something like this we might get a deal done, first under current HRR players go to 50%, 7% goes to ESCROW, owners give a good Revenue sharing plan that helps the struggling teams, and starting in the '13-'14 year, those players who gave money back have it returned to them as bonus payments in the 1-1.5% range per year, even if they retire in that time they get their money back, real money.
