At this point, it's not even the money anymore. Now that both sides are haggling from the same perspective, they'll find some middle ground (hopefully sooner rather than later). Probably somewhere between the ~210M that the NHL offered and the ~390M that the players asked for.

Did the NHLPA's proposal have contract limitations (length, ELC, UFA eligibility)? That's the question. If the PA proposal involved no change, and the NHL is unwilling to come off their severe stance, that could be a bigger long term fight.
