From Russo, who's the beat writer in MN:

#NHL source: Owners were handed TWO proposals from #NHLPA; third (alleged 50/50) proposal was decribed, & not as 50/50 & more complicated

#NHL source: Both first 2 #NHLPA proposals paid out $1.9 billion in '12-13 (more than '11-12) and got to 50-50 in Year 5

Essentially, the #NHL source claims the league was never handed any 3rd proposal that was 50/50 AND honoring contracts by Fehr #nhlpa

However Cotsonika:

NHL says PA's third proposal -- honor existing contracts, then 50-50 -- excludes $650 million over five-year term.

And Elliotte Friedman:

Am personally curious about NHLPA proposal 3, the 50/50 plus contracts being protected. Dispute appears to be...

that NHL feels salary money would be "hidden" outside the system. After both sides calm down and stop breathing fire, we'll see if this...

Idea would have any traction. For the first time, though, I see a deal. We won't have 82 games, but something decent.

It's like a crappy game of telephone where I expect one side to say "purple monkey dishwasher" next.
