One month.

After announcing the start of a lockout, cancelling two weeks of regular season games and meeting together on six occasions with little progress, could a virtually meaningless milestone have finally kicked the NHL's owners and players into gear?

Apparently so.

The owners of the National Hockey League offered a shockingly reasonable Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) to the NHL Players Association on Tuesday that would get a complete 82-game regular season underway in just two weeks.

The deal's jaw-dropper? A fair, 50-50 split of hockey-related revenue (HRR):

The proposal also includes freshly-proposed compromises in a plethora of other areas, including free agency, entry-level contracts and the salary cap. However, an agreement would need to be signed quickly to preserve both a full season and the conditions in the NHL's offer.

What settlements does the new CBA propose? What details are included on each particular issue? A comprehensive, issue-by-issue breakdown of the offer, and how agreeable each compromise will be, falls on the coming slides.
