    NHL Proposes:

    -- Cost certainty, probably in the form of a salary cap for each NHL roster (initial proposal at $31 million).

    -- Revenue sharing would increase in any new CBA deal that features cost certainty.

    -- Non-guaranteed contracts, such as featured in the NFL, could become a part of the new CBA.

    -- Elimination of performance bonuses for entry-level contracts (three-year entry-level cap remains the same).

    -- The age for unrestricted free agency would remain at 31 years of age, and the current restricted free agency rules would continue to apply.

    -- Qualifying offers (a 10% raise for players under the NHL average salary; same salary as previous year for players at or above the NHL average) need to be modified to reduce salary inflation.

    -- Modifications to the salary arbitration system. Owners would like to control the arbitration process, since only the players currently have the right to ask for arbitration.
