So they're going to nitpick on getting more cash from a regular paycheck as opposed to getting it from escrow? They still get 50% of the revenues in this offer no? The players bought out would have gotten their salary otherwise off that 50%.

If you take that amount off the make hole it's pretty much the same, they'll get less reparation in favor of sacrificing some players' contracts, which they would have gotten with the sacrificed contracts not bought out anyway.

I still don't see a difference to make fuss about, but eh Fehr has an agenda that doesn't include playing hockey.
