Am I missing something? What are the owners conceding with this offer? 50-50 sounds nice and fair but at the end of the day they are still asking the players to take a 7% cut while they give themselves a 7% raise, right? What are the players getting out of this?

No immediate paycut and the league promised to give money back in other ways (no idea how though)

The players would start getting a paycheck sooner rather than later.

apparently free agency would be changed to 28 years old or 8 years played. Would that make Zajac an RFA?

This offer is a step in the right direction, but NHLPA won't take it. NHLPA can't take any offer unless it gets even a SINGLE concession. Even if it's some bogus revenue sharing plan that has almost no impact it's important to save face. There's no way this is over yet.

i think it's 28 years old AND 8 years played.

I think it would give Zajac an extra year as an RFA. He'll be 28, but will have only played seven years in 2013.

The "players" are taking a 12% cut ((57-50)/57). Losing a year of UFA, and supposedly taking a 5 year cap on non-rookie deals. In exchange they are being granted nothing from the NHL.

This is the first reasonable offer from the NHL though because it supposedly protects the contracts the players signed during the last CBA. For that it's the first offer to actually get excited about since it's not a complete non-starter for the NHLPA. Regardless, it's still not a great offer. It only seems like one in comparison to the terrible earlier ones.

Ah you're right it is 12%. This is probably working out exactly as the NHL wants it to. Everyone is getting excited about a 50-50 deal because it sounds fair and reasonable and then when the NHLPA inevitably rejects it everybody will point the finger at them instead.

It does look like the league made a pretty decent concession in revenue sharing. I'm not current on what past proposals included but they're going from the current rate of sharing about $150M in revenue to $200M. The PA started out asking for $240M. That's JUST a little more than meeting them halfway.

Interesting. Between the 5-year cap on deals and this, it looks like the owners are really working hard to put the kibash on cap shenanigans. Weird, since they're the ones proposing those contracts. Maybe the small market teams are starting to drive the bus?

The NHLPA asked for that in exchange for a larger share of HRR though still right? Still I did not hear that. That's the face saving concession from the owners (and i'm sure the poorer owners are content with it as well). That makes the deal a little better. Still I expect Fehr to play hardball. Too many concessions from the players.
