I don't think we disagree as much as you think we do, but if we're going to go with 50/50 for the sake of adhering to the other league, then should ELC's be capped at 3 years? Should they be capped at $1.3 or whatever they are? Should we allow performance bonuses? What about franchise players tags? 10/5 veto rights?

Where does it stop?

Also, I'm a bit annoyed that Bettman's first stop was at the press, and I suspect some of the details he dropped weren't in their full context.

If you imposed 57 percent on this year's antipated revenues, what does that come out to in real $ terms? (I have no idea, but I suspect it is more than 1.9 billion, right?)
