Billy Hunter didn't put 50-50 on the table until the CBA was negotiated. The NBA backed off some of their demands.

Quote:
Sources said that the union did not conduct a formal vote of the players assembled in the room Tuesday, opting instead for an informal "everyone agrees" consensus that authorizes Hunter and Fisher to accept a 50-50 split of basketball related income in future negotiations as long as the league makes some concessions on some of the remaining system issues.

Fehr puts 50-50 on the table. What does he get? NHL has to increase their make whole from $211M. Fehr did bring up the back diving contract issue last night.

Quote:
Although no formal proposal was submitted, Fehr said the union did "flesh out" a component of their previous offer -- a provision to deal with the back-diving contracts the league is staunchly committed to eliminate.

Daly said the league "understood the concept when he raised it two weeks ago, and I think we understood it again tonight."

The NHL will get their desire to stop the cheating contracts.

Quote:
That Bill Daly reiterated Monday is that the league was ready to make concessions on the contractual rights of players (up to 5 years contract (etc.) if they approached their wage demands more. We'll see if players are listening

2 year transition period of the cap remaining at $70.2M for 12-13 and 13-14. Amnesty buyouts. Players keep free agency at 7 or 27. Arbitration remains the same. Is the NHL really committed to 2 year entry level contracts? What else does Fehr want or want to keep? Keeping something is not a concession. The PA has proposed eliminating walk away rights in arbitration.
