to avoid being locked out again and receiving no money. the nhl has a few bargaining chips to offer the players association to alleviate their concerns. the olympics, reduced travel, more significant revenue sharing. just because salaries and percentage of revenue might go down, doesnt mean the owners cant give a few things up to satisfy the players. the owners saw what happened in the nba and nfl negotiations. both leagues players took less, the owners of the nhl will want the same.
