The ownwers made an offer. Sounds acceptable. Pucks in your zone players.

Or more appropriately, Bettman realizes that the owners caused the whole mess in the first place, and if he doesn't somehow salvage a full season his ass is grass.

Big of the owners to offer to actually honor the contracts they signed, none the less. But nothing presented that will prevent the 2017 lockout / walkout.

My co-worker who has Sharks season tickets said after he saw the offer he called the team and said "Refund now, please."
