CBA Compromise

Economic Issues

-Step down 50/50 split to honor existing contracts
-$250M in Revenue Sharing Pool to help struggling franchises...Bettmans discretion
-Teams allowed to trade up to $5M in cap space via draft picks or players

Owners compromise here! Owners partner to make league stronger and honor their word with contracts!

Contracting Issues

-2 yr ELS
-Arb Rights for Players 2 years after ELS instead of NHL proposed 3 years...currently 1 year
-UFA at age 27 or 7 seasons pro instead of 28 age/8 seasons
-5 year contracts max with except of 1 franchise contract which can exceed 5 years but no more than 10 years
-15% variance in contract dollars to allow teams flexibility in payroll

Players compromise here! Players give up concessions in contractual rights to help lower escalating contract costs!

Win Win????
