Frame the situation however you want, bottom line is, there were two offers with identical money:
- 50/50, 250m make whole, 50m pension, 5/7 year contract limits, 10 year CBA
- 50/50, 250m make whole, 50m pension, 8 year contract limits, 6-8 year CBA
IMO that is not enough of a difference to cancel a season.
So if it were 100 mil make whole and 8 year length players should agree?
Point was they negotiated the make whole higher in return for limits. For whatever reason that's not included in the nhlpa's package.
