I was looking at the nba CBA and the nbapa agreed to a cap of 10% in their escrow. Which was an increase from their previous CBA (8%) to help cover their BRI percentage reduction from 57% to 51.15% in 2011-12. After that season their share is 49-51%. If the players earn more than the escrow can cover (10%+ a 1% "benefits" fund), then the owners take the loss and the players earn more than they should. No "make whole" deal for the nba.

The other difference is that the nba already had term restrictions on their contracts and didn't have cap-circumvention contracts to "make whole".

Wonder if the NHLPA will sign a similar deal?
