So, to sum up, the split under proposal 3 would (again) start at 57/43 and gradually decline year by year until it eventually settles down at 50/50... in 2026.

The solution is either a fixed 54, 52, 51, 50, 50, 50 (or something along those lines) OR a make-whole that defers salary on current deals in excess of the cap, but doesn't eliminate any dollars and doesn't count against the cap, up to a fixed threshold in each year (e.g. 3% over the cap until such time as all the players' contracts fit under it).
Thank you.. saved me the time. Its "superficially" 50/50 but in reality the players share will exceed 50% split until all current deals expire.

I understand what Fehr is trying to accomplish but reality needs to set in, the owners are not going accept anything less than 50% hard split.
