Last proposal had 8 teams in Conference III and IV, which span from VAN to PHX and from WPG to DAL ... this one has the 8 teams in the 2 conferences that are all in the ETZ.
It's not a huge concession, but one that maybe was enough for the NHLPA, especially if it's only for 1-2 seasons until expansion/relocation happens.
