The owners original proposal included a 24% salary rollback, so I am not quite sure where you are getting your information from. The last offer from the NHL provided for 149 million to be paid in the first year, and 62 million in the second, in order to "try" and fulfill existing contracts after the players agree to a 50-50 split in annual revenue. However, for each % point drop in annual revenue will equal a 33 million dollar decline to the players. Thus, 7%= 231 million dollars, times the 2 years, equals 462 million dollars. The players would be receiving 462 million dollars less over the first 2 years, with the owners offering 211 million to try and make this up. Thus, there will be a rollback in salaries, the math does not add up. Is there something I am missing in all of this? You cannot say the owners have not, when they have, and are not, when they are, an annual salary reduction when they clearly, and absolutely are.
