To cut down on some of the embedded tweets, I will add some here too, this one from Bob McKenzie.

We’re also hearing the NHLPA proposal will work off a percentage of HRR—as requested by NHL—and not a guaranteed dollar amount.

Confirmation from meetings, PA makes major move towards owners side. Making players whole still big issue for Union.

John Shannon tweets again,

As part of the PA proposal, union would agree to small variance on contracts, but not agree to terms limit on deals.

from Aaron Ward tweets,

Source,NHLPA proposal took NHL structure,50/50,no guarantee.Only difference,took $211M (make whole) to $393M over 4 yrs.This $393M works

out to an added 1.2M per team,per year over 5 yrs of the deal.Player contracting-back diving-provides a measure that determines the added

advantage gained if player retires early.Penalizes team going forward based on benefit obtained.No need for term limits or variation.
