The answer to the question would be easy:

"The players agreed to get the overall HRR split to 50-50. Those numbers need three to four season to get to 50-50 because of the make whole provision which the owners put forth in order to satisfy our request of honoring current contracts in full. While it's not 50-50 right off the bat, it satisfies something that is very important to the players while setting up the financial stability and equality for the future that the owners say is very important to them."

(In a Stephen Colbert voice): PRINCETON DIPLOMA AND NHL CONTRACT PLEASE!!!
