De-linkage is removing this set percentage. In all of the NHLPA's proposal rather than having players salaries a percentage of HRR they propose players salaries are a set amount. So de-likage is removing the linkage between salaries and revenues.
Thank you. Interesting, so basically (now) all players would get the same amount of HRR? So whether you're a 4th line scrub or Crosby, you would get the same amount? And when you say salaries, I'm assuming this has nothing to do with their contracts? This is basically additional income on top of their guaranteed income, yea?
