Honestly, if the players had offered this deal, I think the league would have taken it. Unfortunately, Fehr seems intent upon de-linking salary from HRR. The league would rather lose two seasons than do that. (Note, this is not at all giving even the least bit of credence to those nutjobs who imply that losing two seasons is even remotely possible)

Add a "make whole" provision in the case of a revenue hit this year or next and have it come out of the owners pockets and we're playing hockey.
