And yet the amounts proposed still do very little long term (and are only 50m apart). And even the PA's proposal (if the NHL accepted exactly what they proposed) would still be in the exact same position at the end of this new CBA - as those offers will not prevent that from happening... they can't.

But then it's not like the NHLs proposals are any better in this regard. With the proposals we've seen, the NHLs is only slightly better for the long term health of the league then the PA's.
