On Twitter:
  • 9/7 on new CBAs length
  • 6/8 on max contract lengths
  • 10% max annual contract variance
  • Make whole $300M
  • $70,2 (2013)/$64,8 M (2013/2014) cap roof. Cap floor from 2013/2014 taken from NHLs proposal
  • Compliance buyouts as per NHLs offer both before this year or before next year starts (10 day periods)
  • 50/50 split of HRR (this formula also decides cap from 2014/2015 based on previous years fallout + mutually decided prognosis formula - escrow finalizes the actual salary anyways)
  • HRR according to previous formula
  • Salaries at or above league minimum count against cap regardless of where players are (after 2nd compliance buyout period)
  • No change to rules on free agency
  • Re entry waivers gone
  • Realignment according to NHLs wishes

Elliotte Friedman writes at CBC, that the players aren’t happy with how the league handled the pension in their latest offer.
Not sure what is meant here

Friedman says that the biggest issue is going to be escrow and the owners see any cap on escrow as a “major concession.”
Cap on escrow ?? Something like 5-10% - similar to Battermans NBA deal?

Get er done!

Oh yeah, Bettman, Daley & The Fehrs all mutually agree to immediately resign and this ******* lawfirm Proskauer Rose never as much as whispers hockey again in their client portfolio ever
