If the players counter with everything the same, but a 7 year max on contracts, I'd bet we still have a deal. This offer from the NHL is worlds better than their last offers and certainly in the ballpark on reasonable.

Rather than reject this offer, I hope the players respond with a "We will accept if" and look at a couple of the contract term issues (max length, team control till 28, etc).
