Read: Bridging The Make Whole Gap

Yesterday Donald Fehr announced that there was no longer a discrepancy of upwards of $1 billion or so between the NHL and NHLPA on the topic of make whole and that the number was now $182 million.

The NHL proposal calls for $211 million to be paid in make whole payments while the NHLPA’s proposal saw the league paying $393 million in a four-year installment plan that broke down as:

  • $182 million in year one
  • $128 million in year two
  • $72 million in year three
  • $11 million in year four

Bob McKenzie tweeted last night that the key, to him, is finding a way to bridge that gap. He notes that it may be hard to do as the owners may not go above $211 million and they could decrease that offer moving forward. “As days pass and games get cancelled, Make Whole dollars can’t stay constant. Shorter the season, the more MW$ will skew player share.”

Pierre LeBrun says “Make Whole $$$ asked for by players will need to go down”

The $182 million difference breaks down as $6 million per team over the course of the CBA.

The only thing Geno should be ready for is to be cut at the end of the season.

John Idzik.....lol

Comforting that our GM is now playing head coach and starting Geno despite the players and coaches being against this move. Maybe we'll get a higher draft pick as a result......Either way the Jets are a MESS

I guess a Jets backup QB being ready to start is news-worthy.

Geno? Soon to be forgotten. Woody the real problem is you. You hire you meddle, how else do you have such a bad situation in the management of the team? You dont even fire well, just look at Bradway hiding behind the curtains in your scouting department.

I still think we should start Vick, but will be hoping for the best with Geno.


We gotta hold on to Rex as a DC... somehow...

Woody you fool, don't be a blithering dummy and bring back Idzik. The man is in over his head.

@kniff We'd all love that but let him go -- there's no shot him being a subordinate on his own team.

Ha...of course he's one position we don't need. The backs we already have don't get enough carries as it is.

@Brendan  He was pretty gimpy last week. I will try to catch some of the games.
