What needs to happen to bring hockey back is the NHL needs to make some concessions to the PA in order to get the cap linkage down to 50%, on top of the make whole and honoring the contracts they signed.
I'm not talking about original offers, I'm talking about what needs to be done NOW!!! to make a deal happen, and both sides have give up on a couple more things, even if they disagree with the principle.
