TSN's Solution for the NHL labour impasse

TSN posted a framework they think the NHL and NHLPA could use as a starting point for new negotiations. I think it's mostly fair and reasonable and could be the face-saving way for either side to start talking to the other.

TSN calls their framework The TSN Solution.

One thing I didn't see on there (I read it on Tuesday I think, so I could have forgotten) was making contracts not guaranteed, like in the NFL. I think that's something the NHL should push for. That would light a fire under the butts of the lazier players.
