Weve made a proposal about the back-diving contracts. Weve made a proposal on not capping the minor league guys. Were trying to make things work, but the deal isnt good enough yet, said Thornton. I was in the room when Don [Fehr] was trying to get a deal done. I cant give too much away, but Ive been on the inside and listened to him talk to the negotiating committee, the experts on the [NHLPA] staff about revenue sharing and player contract rights.

So the PA has made a proposal on the cheating contracts. The capping of the AHL guys is the $105,000 threshold. No more re-entry waivers. The NHL proposed players making above $105,000 AHL have their NHL salaries count against the cap. PA believes that acts as a cap on AHL salaries. They're right about that.
