At the end of the day, the NHL made what appeared to be a major move toward the middle, upping it’s offer to guarantee existing contracts from $211 million to $300 million. But the pool of money comes with some conditions, including a 10-year length to a new CBA and a five-year cap on contract lengths -- both conditions the players oppose. Some of that make whole money comes from player pensions, which is also a concern to the players.
Owners finding new ways for players to pay themselves.

Heres question confronting PA: Can players get better deal in 3,4 weeks if this falls thru and would it compensate for loss of further gms?

John Shannon @JSportsnet
Been told that NHLPA does have every intent in meeting today. Still meeting internally.
