Why is that? It includes:

1) The NHL covering all salaries to make players whole at the owner's expense in exchange for 50-50 of HRR moving forward.

This is exactly what the players are asking for here.

2) Salary cap, which is already in place.

The only other two items:

3) 5% variance year to year on contracts

If the NHL forgets about all the other stuff - max contracts, change in arbitration and UFA age, etc. - the NHLPA would accept this single clause.

4) ~$250M of revenue sharing to help small market teams

The NHLPA's requested $260M. If the league offers $250M, that's close enough.

The players accept that deal.
