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.
