The PA pushed for the "Make Whole" to be completely outside the cap.
Locking the escrow at a hard target dollar amount would also be... outside the cap.
Basically, all of these things, if true, would still be considered a de-linked proposal from the hard liner owners. Anything that has them giving money to the players outside of their share is "de-linked". The biggest concession that the owners have made is the "make whole" provision, which is the only monies they are willing to frontwhich would be above and beyond the 50% Player Share.
Which, by the way, I heard a rumor that it was Leipold that strong armed a few other owners into getting on board with the "Make Whole" provision in the first place. It was supposedly the Penguins and Winnipeg guys that pushed it to 300M.
