The owners would be fine with that because it would mean their revenue grows. That's the point of linkage.

What they won't accept is something like Fehr's proposal and 1% HRR growth in the coming six years and having to go into a CBA negotiation 2018 where the NHLPA has 59% of HRR that they feel they have to defend.
