If I were a PA member, I wouldn't budge off 57% either UNTIL the NHL was willing to increase revenue sharing via richer clubs giving to the bottom 10-12.

People today turned against the PA I noticed. I hope this time though with Fehr in charge, they won't bend over like the last time and not care about public opinion. In fact their initial offer was flawed. They should've done what the NHL did, make an unreasonable initial offer and then come down to 57% with the revenue sharing added proposal. Then we'd be saying the opposite.
Players make much more money on average now compared to before the last lockout. If that was them bending over, I don't dare to think what them winning would look like.
