That was the basis of one of the proposals. Another one, apparently, is like LeBrun reported: 50/50 split, but honoring all the current contracts. No salary rollbacks.

Which would work...except that'd bring the salary cap down drastically and put a lot of teams over the cap immediately. Which would simply mean teams like Nashville and the Islanders would be getting good players for scrap, simply because they have space and teams need to cut it.
