Thus far, none of the deals on the table involve concessions from the NHL, and all of the deals involve concessions from the players.

The main shift is a transfer from 57% to 50% of revenue for the players. That's around 280 million dollars per year in concessions.

The owners are also demanding reduced free agency privileges, 5-year ELCs, and five-year (six-years?) contract limits.

What are the owners offering that the players were not getting before? NOTHING. Ergo, they are making zero concessions.

If you actually think the owners are the ones making all the concessions, then you need to dab your face in cold water, as you are an easy prey for propaganda.
