Variance - Only part where they are far apart. NHL wants 5%, PA wants 75%. NHL isn't going to budge.
Indeed. Wasn't everybody saying how the NHLPA had to stand up to the nhl in these CBA negotiations because "if they don't the nhl will be back asking for more next time around". Umm...if you think the nhl is going to try to squeeze the nhlpa in the years to come, wouldn't a longer lockout be good for the players.
