Although there is a lot of PR gibberish in the NHL's 50/50 proposal it still sounds like the blue plate for both sides to negotiate from.

The biggest problem though is the NHL's position to not honor full value on existing contracts. That is on the owners. Jacobs signed 2 big contracts (Segin and Lucic) and now it is obvious that he did that knowing that part of the NHL's strategy was going to be an immediate roll back on existing contracts. Shame on him and all the other owners that did that.
Not as big a contract, but don't forget Marchand.
