Oh, and for those interested there was an interesting blog article that Elliotte Friedman of CBC's Hockey Night in Canada wrote regarding a variety of issues related to the hot topics in the CBA negotiations.
Things like financially, what it really means when the owners and players fight over the revenue split. Right now it's at a 57% to 43% split in revenue with the bigger chunk going towards the players.
What most don't realize is that every 1% represents about $30 million dollars. So if you were to suggest a 50-50 split then you're potentially telling the players that they should give up a $210 million dollars share of the pie. So it's not chump change being talked about and it's not all that simple to just change a few percentage points and call it even.
He even talks about the revenue sharing model being used by the NFL and the MLB - important since that's the system that Donald Fehr helped put together when he was working as the Player's Association rep over there.
