Doesn't change Levitate's point. For some reason the players' window to make a proposal closed. The league never made a "reasonable" offer until a few weeks ago. The league has known for months that the players want some protection for current salaries and they chose to ignore that. The could have easily incorporated that into their proposal instead of kicking the hornets' nest with that ridiculous make whole sham. We would have a deal if the NHL just stepped up and conceded one thingto the players.
