IMO, just a guess, but with $16M range I would say cap at $65.75M and floor at $49.75M. Just guesswork, tho.
11-12 upper limit was $64.3M.
NHLPA has proposed the floor being a % of the upper limit.
The PA won't accept the offer. They will negotiate off of it. Hopefully.
The NHL doesn't expect the PA to accept it as is.
Beyond that, I don't want to get into the substance other than to say we believe that this was a fair offer for a long-term deal, and it's one that we hope gets a positive reaction so that we can drop the puck on November 2nd -- which backing up, entails at least a one-week training camp. So we have about nine or ten days to get this all put to bed, signed, sealed and delivered, in order for this offer to be effective and for us to move forward.
