here is a new update just came in off the press and these 2 I follow a lot and if this guy is saying it, now I can believe the deal is just about done.
Aaron Ward @aaronward_nhl
Told NHLPA has moved on the salary cap to 64.3 which happens to be the upper limit from last year
Tim Panaccio @tpanotchCSN
Sources on both sides see Monday as likely date when all is settled. But could be late Sunday, as well
ok, that is big the PA has agreed to come down on year 2 cap. I been mentioning that they came down from 65 to 63, it is actually 64.3 - so forgive me, I was off by 1.3
lastly tim pannachio from CSN is now tweeting deal is to be set on Monday or late sunday.
Like I anticipated from previous post earlier today. were just to close to not get this deal done, based off of the agreements being made on the final issues.
so now the final battle the pa wanted nhl to come up in year 2 from 60 m and they agreed to do so, but it wasn't enough for the PA they want them to come up more, don't know what they came up to.
I predidcted NHL is between the 61-62.5 range PA came down they are at 64.3m
so at worst the gap is 2.8m that is all that is left to iron out by the mediator
