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.
Isn't the year-over-year growth factor the escalator? Pretty sure that's how the BoH guys interpreted it.
