So altho slightly de-linked... it is still a negotiable point by the league according to Bettman.
i.e. if the players accept the other points and contract restrictions, the owners have suggested they DO have flexibility to accept paying the 13% to a certain degree. (to what degree is unknown and subject to the ongoing negotiation obviously)

Fehr stated as such in the Ottawa Sun article and in the letter to the players.

Are you talking about the proposal he gave verbally or the one which was written on a napkin...
