They are asking A LOT of contracting concessions... I gotta side with the PA on these.
The NHL also demanded 43%. They said the players had to pay for Make Whole. They said that 50/50 was off the table if they couldn't get an 82 game season.
When Bettman says "we won't accept a contract without these contracting factors in place", that's just a move to get the union to budge. It really just means "we aren't going to make the next proposal on these factors." We've seen Fehr pull the same move loads of times.
