A breakthrough can be made if they can back off from those. Just demand the 5% variance rule. I'm sure the PA would be willing to accept that and this should lead to a pathway for a deal to be made. IMO, there is a deal to be made soon.
They likely will. I doubt the NHL seriously thinks they will be getting a 5 year max. I think they are probably going to settle for 7, maybe even 8.
