According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the NHL has presented a new CBA offer to the NHLPA in hopes of ending the NHL Lockout.

In the new offer, the NHL has moved on several key issues. ESPN’s Pierre Lebrun does a nice job of  breaking down the details of the new deal.

Here’s a look at his breakdown:

  • Term limit on player contracts moves to six years from the five years NHL asked in previous offers (seven years if you’re re-signing your own player).
  • Year-to-year salary variance moves from 5 percent (NHL’s previous offers) to 10 percent.
  • Each team will be allowed one compliance buyout before the 2013-14 season that will not count against the salary cap but will count against the players’ share.
  • The Make Whole provision stays at $300 million.
