The fact that fehr hasnt agreed on one aspect of a linked 50-50, that does or doesnt involve make whole is kind of slowing things down. Once the split and the make whole provision is agreed on, the owners are going to negotiate on the contract terms.
Question, why should the nhl show there cards completely and go all in before the nhlpa even agrees they are going to go in with you?
The nhl has already showed the end game of the split of hrr, 50-50 with the owners paying back the money they have already lost for this season.
Now it is time for fehr to agree, and start the negotiations on the other aspects of the cba.
