    I think 1 for 1 at $40, cap at $45, no cap indexation, cap will drop clause changed to 10 teams above 42.5 million.

    As Bettman virtually said as much, I would go with the same numbers. Floor of $25 million. Afterall every team was above that or within spitting distance of that number last year, and they have that $10 million a team war chest untapped if the revenues really do fall. The Clause #7 poison pill is gone too. I suspect that Good'nPlenty is gone as well after this deal is done, if it is done. I just am not so sure that there remains time for a season worth playing.

    I’ll cut ’n paste this from my lonely Wednesday morning thread:

    http://www.hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=129836

    NEW CBA DEAL POINTS

    1. Term - 6 full seasons (through 9-15-11).

    2. CBA System Incorporation of NHLPA December 9, 2004 proposal into the recently expired CBA, with indexing of financial provisions (per diems, etc.) at 2% per year, with the following additional changes requested by the NHL yesterday:
    (a) Increased salary arbitration rights for Clubs -- to be agreed upon. Salary arbitration available after Player leaves Entry Level System.
    (b) Cap on Exhibit 5 Individual B Performance Bonuses -- to be agreed upon but performance bonuses not to exceed 40% of salary.
    (c) Replace NHLPA Revenue Sharing Plan with NHL Revenue Sharing Plan to share at least $88M in each year of the Agreement. Clubs may credit any payroll taxes paid against their revenue sharing contribution.

    3. Team Payroll Limit - $45M in salary, bonuses and benefits.

    4. Minimum Team Payroll - $28M

    5. Minimum Player Salary - $300K (as per NHL Proposal)

    6. Payroll Taxes - $35M - $37.5M (25%)
    $37.5M - $40M (50%)
    $40M - $42.5M (75%)
    $42.5M - $45M (100%)
    $45M - $47.5M (200%) only once per team during 6 year term

    7. Indexing of Tax Rates and Payroll Minimums & Maximums will apply after 2005-06 ONLY IF total player compensation is less than 58% of total club revenues. All dollar amounts would be in place for 2004-05 (pro-rated) and 2005-06. Dollar levels for tax rates, payroll minimums & maximums for subsequent years either constant or increased by % change in greater of either hockey related revenues or only the gate receipts and broadcasting segments of hockey related revenues from the 2005-06 base year.

    8. 2005 Playoffs 50% of playoff revenues to be paid to Players for the 2005 playoffs.

    I'll add a new point - cap drops to 42.5 for a season if 8 teams over 42.5M for the previous season.
