you can't get to 50/50 in year 1 and pay the existing contracts in full. owners attempted to do it with the 'make whole' deferred payments that the players didn't like, but nhlpa should have countered that with a version that works for them.
the other option is a gradual decline. but the players want 54/52/50/50/50/50 but pretend it was 50 all 6 years. what are they giving in return for the extra 6% in years 1 and 2? how bout as a giveback for being above the 3rd year dips below 50 to pull the 6 year average closer to 50%?
