Bingo.

I would take this deal with a grain of salt at this point. If they are covering virtually every aspect it is either two things:

1. They are really trying to reach a deal before the season is cancelled

2. The sides are so far apart that neither believes a season will resume, so the NHL is planning for court battles


And whoever said the PA wouldn't take a 50-50 split is wrong, most players have stated that is what they indeed want and believe to be fair. Why they don't just make the max contract length 7 years and shorten the CBA term we might never know.
