Yes, 57%. Anything less is a pay cut.
No changing the value of a players contract is a pay cut. Escrow does not change the value of the contract it only changes the amount that gets paid towards that contract in each year.
Plus I don't know why your arguing about something the NHL has agreed to cover. The PA keeps offering deals that need 7.2 growth to reach 50/50 and yet they are now worried there might not be 5% growth. They want to have guaranteed raises with no risk.
