I addressed RS in response to Crease.
Make Partial/Whole is something that the NHL conjured up in its framework. The players have to move towards the NHL; the NHL agrees to take less than they'd originally asked.
You're arguing tactics or details to reach 50/50. The concession was on the PA side to accept the new rate.
Giving up less POTENTIAL money by agreeing to take guaranteed less in raises while doing nothing if revenues don't grow is not a concession. If they're actually agreeing to go to 50/50 then yes that's a concession but right now whether or not they are is up for debate. What have they actually conceded in this so far?
A new CBA hasn't been signed, so none of these points should count yet if this you're basis.
