They lost out last time, and they're still at 57% of HRR. Much more than other leagues in the US. It should be clear that results from the last lockout weren't enough to have a competitive and healthy league.

It should further clarify just how bad the system BEFORE the last lockout was.

Just because the players gave some small concessions (compared to where the owners want to be to run a healthy league), doesn't mean it was a good faith counter-offer.

If the owners make a half-assed counter offer, giving back some money, will that suddenly sway you like the player's half-assed offer clearly did? Come on man....

Ultimately this comes down to the players currently receiving too much of the overall revenues and the owners not having a revenue sharing plan that will sustain the lower half of the league who can't compete financially or on the ice with the teams that spend to the cap.
