Point was they negotiated the make whole higher in return for limits. For whatever reason that's not included in the nhlpa's package.
I don't know about that exact figure, but yes, if the players want to continue under the same general system, they'd do better agreeing to what they think is less than a fair deal, rather than miss more time. I'd still rather see them permanently dissolve the union, so that we never have to go through this again... but if they are not willing to go through that process this time around, they might as well swallow their pride.

If I was an owner, I'd also be pushing to get the deal done asap. They shouldn't want this to go to the courts, and if they agree to the latest union proposal as is, they still "win" the negotiations by a mile.
