Nothing, really. They proposed a small bump in RS, which the league mostly adopted in its last proposal. Great.

If Donald Fehr is basically insinuating that Phoenix needs to be moved, then he can suck an egg, not because it doesn't, but because the last people to be making that decision is the goddamned PA. This is not the forum for making that call.
You're right, the PA doesn't have a say. The league can back themselves into a corner by making poor financial decisions that are fuelled by pride and then get out of it by reducing the players share. Sounds legit.
