Strongly disagree. There's really 3 issues:

1) Firm linkage: NHL demands.
2) Make whole $'s: PA wants $180M+ more.
3) Contract terms: negotiable.

Seems pretty simple to me. Owners could say something like - "If we offer an extra $90M of makewhole, will you accept firm linkage and 5 year max contract length? All arbitration, UFA and ELC stay the same as they are currently."

It could be as simple as that from my perspective.
