The MOU discusses how the range will be computed. Formula utilized in the expired CBA. Before the CBA was struck,the NHL didn't want to give the 5% bump. In previous NHL proposals,the NHL didn't include the 5% and mentioned the range will be computed with the existing methodology. Considering how the CBA went down,Bettman probably folded on that. The NHL was willing to use % if revenue reached a certain figure.

Beginning in 2014/15, and on a going forward basis, the Payroll Range will be calculated as follows:
a) The Midpoint will be calculated in accordance with the formula utilized in the expired CBA,
including with respect to the year-over-year growth factor and using 50% as the applicable
Players’ Share.
b) The Upper and Lower Limits will be determined as follows:
• Upper Limit: +15% of the Adjusted Midpoint
• Lower Limit: -15% of the Adjusted Midpoint
• Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Upper Limit shall never fall below $64.3M during the
term of this Agreement and the magnitude of the Payroll Range shall never fall below
$16 million and never rise above $28 million (from Lower Limit to Upper Limit).
