What more is needed? I said addressing the variance issue should resolve anything and everything that all teams need right now to have a good footing. You don't need to restrict player rights. They should get some ability to control their own destinies above and beyond the league's required economic changes.
I don't think the NHL will even fight not changing ElC, arbitration and UFA once the PA finally gives up their quest for delinkage. That's still the main issue and the NHL is not going to keep budging on issues while Fehr keeps throwing up what is basically the same offer he three up 3 months ago. Once the PA actually gives the NHL linked 50%, then things will fall into place quickly and the NHL will give in on the contract rights issues, other than protected against front loaded contracts that circumvent the cap.
