Why not?? Make Liarpold and those guys pay up what they offered in those big money deals this summer. Hold them to THEIR OWN AGREEMENTS. I can't see how the owners would argue that's unfair or "way off". It's the dog food you prepared owners, just like always. Now you eat it.

Sorry, blackberry dead, wanted to mention Bill Daly's response to proposal 3. Says it is closer to 56 or 57 per cent, with $650M "hidden."
Then he was asked what was meant by hidden and how they would hide it, and he responded with this ...

@pairofdice1024 What NHL is saying is that $650 million would not be included in the revenue split, so NHLPA cannot argue it is truly a 50/50 share. But, I wonder if this kind of idea can be negotiated upon. It has potential.
