Here's a really good rundown of where the two sides have not come to an agreement from Elliotte Friedman.
Cap for the 2013-14 season: NHL wants $60 million US; the players $65 million
Contract Length: NHL at six years for someone else's free agent, seven years for your own; NHLPA wants eight years overall
Both sides accept a 10-year term on CBA: league wants the mutual out after 8 seasons; players want it to be 7
League wants the expiration date to be June 30, instead of Sept. 15 (The NHLPA would like it to stay the same). That would prevent another spending orgy right before pleading poverty.
1 source outlined the league has proposed 30% variance, but that no year in any multi-season contract can be lower than 60% of the highest-paid year
