I hope they release the proposals so I can see if that's what they are doing.
You forgot the best part...The growth has to be around 7% yearly for that to happen. Good luck finding a way to incrasing league profits by ~30%.
Ofcorse I expect that the NHLPA has probably AGAIN proposed the year 5 rollback to just 57% they make right now.
