the owners have to pay for all the damages of a lockout.
IMO the owners will eventually give on most contract rights issues, except for the 5% varience on contracts which is their main need.
Yes, they got the basic concepts they wanted but the actual % is just as important as the concept of linkage.
I agree with you on the rest, I don't think the NHL really cares about the contract limitations that much, as long as they get the true 50/50 split.
