Even when they made their first offer it was with the belief that revenues were not expected to continue to grow at the same rate it has the last 2+ years.
What are you tkaing about? The NHL didn't give in on that point. They are the ones who wanted a linked cap to begin with. And the NHL has been operating under a linked cap for the past 8 year.

The NHLPA offered the NHL a fixed cap during hte last lcokout to which the NHL turned down cause they wanted linkage which both shares in the ups and downs of revenue growth. If the NHL had taken the fixed cap the NHLPA had offered the players would have lost out big time.
