...and thanks for the clarifying so far.
I think (not positive on the current status of it) that the make whole proposal money on the table now is a portion of the HRR that the players would give up. The players drop from 57% to 50% and a portion of that lost revenue is paid back to players under current NHL contracts as part of the moke whole proposal. I don't think it's based on a % of future revenue like you are thinking but rather the difference in what the players were making then versus now.
