Heck if the players entered into a serious dialogue, I bet they might even get that extra year back too.

The contract max, 5% variance and the 2 year ELC is all they really want. The rest are there so that they can come to a middle ground.
Last time they meet, it's not what Bettman said, he told the PA that they were past "give and take" on that issue.
