Thanks. Good start, then. There will no doubt be details to work out, probably swapping Olympic participation for the league's proposed conference and schedule proposal from last season, etc. As a basic framework, though? This seems close. This seems like reason for genuine optimism, depending on how Fehr responds.

The league would be well served not to attack UFA too aggressively, in my opinion. Now what about long contracts? That one ought to be on the table, in addition to restrictions on the degree to which you can front-load those deals. A basic UFA age discussion could be a deal breaker under certain circumstances, though.
