The NHL "Make Whole" offer would have almost entirely made up the difference for players currently with contracts, depending on revenue growth in the next 3 years.

The thing is: if Fehr would actually bargain from the framework the nhl has put forward, he could move the owners significantly in the "Make Whole" amount and in the contract details as well. Understandably right now, the owners don't want to budge on those issues while Fehr is still trying to remove linkage.
