Sounds good. I'm most interested in changes to ratio and the status of international players. Hoping we get some clarification on that soon!

Board of Govenors have to approve (vote today apparently) and the players have to ratify the agreement.  But hopefully this all gets done.  Like any labour agreement, not everyone will be happy.

Good to hear and more or less expected an agreement to happen before TC.

I also want to hear about any changes to ratio / implementation time frame, global players and whether there is any net change to roster size.

No one will be happy.  That's a compromise for you.

Early reports are:

3 year deal.
Ratio unchanged, at least in year 1.
Cap continues to rise 50k per year.
Minimum salary going up to 65k in year 2 and 3.

That's a big deal if true. It will have a big impact on top end salaries.
