I think there would of been a deal if the players responded somewhere around the following:

-We don't like 5 year contract lengths, how about 7 years?

-New UFA rules. Nah let's keep it where it's at.

-One year transition where teams can spend to 70 million? Let's add one more year to that.

-50-50, sure but agree to the above first.
That's a nice idea. A pity the league refused out right to negotiate on all but one issue in their last proposal. Putting out 'take it or leave it' proposals is in no way conducive to getting a deal done.
