since the players do not want a roll back, one option is to go to last years cap of 64.3 million per team. Based on the projected revenues for this year, that would be 52.2% of HRR. This allows the players to save face while giving Bettman his more favourable split.

The cap would stay the same until revenues grow to the amount where it is 50%. After that, the players would get their minimum 50% of HRR. This is an incentive for the league to grow revenues while still not clawing back any contracts.

In order to allow teams to get to the 64.3 ceiling, there would be buyouts. This allows the higher spending teams to reach the floor while the players get extra money that isn't counting toward the cap.

Seems pretty simple to me
