that the NHLPA proposal of a 10% roll back on salaries equals a reduction of the NHL schedule to 74 games.
Kind of transparent when viewed in the light that as part of a CBA the season would be shortened to 74 games as some have proposed.
1)the idea of reducing the schedule hasn't even been brought up in talks yet
2)they are giving up GUARANTEED $$...you act like a 10% reduction in games would automatically mean the players would get 10% less, but that isn't true. if the players refused to give up the guaranteed $$ then they would make the same $$ over fewer games...
