The only way for current contracts to be honoured and to have a shift from 57% to 50% in year one is to transfer money from future contracts to current contracts.

As long as the shift to 50% happens immediately, it's still the players paying.
Paying a couple of hundreds of millions directly to the players is not considered a concession?

At least the NHL has offered to soften the blow to the players this year. Guys with long term contracts are barely affected either way so the sooner Fehr drops delinkage the more likely he'll still have a job after this mess.
