You need to back up, the NHL wanted but did not get the cap in 94. It is the result of free agency and part of a cyclical shift in power. The players power peaked in 04 and has come down as measured by percentage of revenue. I still think the players power as measured by percent of revenue will be further reduced on this round.
The shift by Daly was the PR war with the PA. Fehr said close, Daly doesn't think so. The mediators gave him ammunition for "far apart" last time. IMO, the whole mediator thing may be on a separate thread itself. They may be looking for ammunition for an impasse. Does a mediator's opinion hold weight with the courts?
