He's referring to the talking point that "But Gary took 24% rollback from a previous NHLPA offer and put it in the final CBA".
What's lost in that talking point is that a rollback was going to happen one way or another and that 24% rollback was probably teh better way to do it. PA supporters seem to like to pretend the rollback was some sort of bonus. It wasn't. The NHL would not have agreed to any CBA without a rollback, either through a direct one (such as the 24%) or through massive escrow payments.
