“They (Daly and Steve Fehr) talked for a long time. I guess that’s a positive sign,” said Bartlett.

As the two sides get towards the inevitable 50-50 split of hockey-related revenue, Bartlett knows the league has now offered to guarantee payment on all existing player contracts through deferred payments, out of the owners’ pockets in the “make whole” provision. Three weeks ago, the deferred payments would have come out of the players’ share of the 50-50 split of revenue. That was a non-starter.

That's Steve Bartlett. Player agent. No specific proposal was made about the "make whole" but Daly and Fehr did discuss it. Word got back to the agents. Bartlett doesn't believe the PA should agree to contract term limits. Lets not be stupid here. 7 years or 8 years is more than enough. The players should retain free agency and arbitration where it is.
