IMO, it all comes down to if the NHLPA will agree to a LINKED deal in the first few years.

All of their "proposals" have been for an arbitrary number, delinked from revenues. The ironic thing is that they did this in the last negotiation and had the owners accepted, the salary cap would have been a stagnant 49mil.

Yes, there are some inherent risks in linkage when it comes to a decline in revenues, but I just do not see that happening. You have hockey crazy Canada, large markets with good teams, generational talents in good markets, etc.
