Not at all

The NHLPA proposal calls for guaranteed share in years 2-5 and a cap upper limit that doesn't drop

Basically no linkage and all risk goes to owners financially

+ They want more make Whole on top of it

The yrs 2-5 of NHLPA offer go against the very basic framework of what NHL wants ,, So no this is nothing like what NHL was asking for

Also Make Whole increase + Guaranteed 2-5 yrs = Never really reaching 50/50 split

It was basically the same proposal the NHLPA has put forth economically in past
