The keys to the NHL proposal from what I can gather: protection of 1st year salary through return of $$ over time, 50/50 split, long-term
That might be a tricky slope to go down with the players. However, it's a good negotiating point. Players have a legitimate offer from what i'm reading on twitter from credible sources. It's not the final deal but the NHLPA can't say anymore that they are negociating with themselves.

EDIT: More good info from Bob MacKenzie

50 per cent of that is $1.7325B. Players salaries committed for this season expected (by both sides) to be about $1.95B, give or take $25M.
