What the NHLPA will like about NHL offer: status quo on UFA and salary arbitration.

What NHLPA may not like about NHL proposal: $300M Make Whole, up from $211M offer, which more or less splits difference on NHLPA ask $393M.

Of the $300M NHL proposed for Make Whole, $250M is Make Whole and $50M is for pension funding that would not come out of the players' share

What NHLPA definitely won't like about NHL offer: 5 year term limit on contracts (except 7 for own UFAs), 5% variance, 10 year term for CBA.

Couple of other details emerging: NHL proposal for 10 year CBA term contains an opt-out clause after 8 years. So it could be an 8 year deal.
My idea of a compromise
  • 61 game schedule 2012/2013
  • Rework a prorated system to adjust to the lockout consequences for year one regarding salaries and cap space
  • Definition of HRR remains the same
  • 50/50 Revenue split
  • Make whole agreement according to latest NHL proposal
  • Status quo on UFA and salary arbitration
  • Revenue sharing index raised - based at starting at 200 M for year one (prorated for a shorter schedule)
  • 6 year term limit on contracts (except 9 for own products that entered the NHL with that team and are UFAs)
  • 8% variance on contracts
  • Two week compliance buyout period before season starts
  • Two Way Contract Fix with minor league teams that all players with new contracts over 500.000 count against NHL cap
  • Draft and UFA period according to NHL proposal
  • Allow buying of cap space by Dollars allowed to Be Traded Between Teams
  • A Luxury Tax Paid To Go Over the Cap by 10% maximum
  • Reinstate bonus system from last CBA
  • Re-work the NHL Discipline System
  • Bunk-beds mandatory on the road until you reach RFA status (for Mr Jacobs)
  • 10 year CBA term contains an opt-out clause after 8 years

Get er done!

Ooops - almost forgot. Honorable discharge for Mr Bettman
