The NHL proposed 1 year of transition at $70.2M for 12-13 which was based on playing a 82 game season. The PA proposes $67.25M and its a problem. The PA proposed the floor being made of a % in August. I heard Bill Daly on the Fan590 discussing it and he didn't seem to have an issue with it.
It's expected to increase, sure. But NHLPA still wants the reward without the risk.
