-Owners moves from 211 million to 300 million in the make whole. NHLPA was asking for 383 million. We have compromise here and seems like they might be heading in the right direction
-Owners also budged on the UFA and arbitration rights, proposing the same as the last CBA.
-The one sticking point seems to be contracts. NHL will not give in on 5 year deals for UFA(7 year deals if he is your teams property) and 5 % variance. No word on what the NHLPA wants in this regard.
-Also Arron Ward says one major sticking point is the NHL does not want to honor full amount on existing contracts.
-Another major sticking point is the length of the CBA, NHL wants 10 and it is being said that NHLPA doesn't want one that long. Which I don't really understand.
Pretty much a wrap of all that was being discussed tonight. All this info came either from Ward's, Bobby Mac's, Damian Cox, and John Shannons twitters.
