I agree with what you're saying, but I'm still on the NHLPA's side on this one.

The owners made a ridiculous initial offer, so that each time they made a "concession" they would be looked upon as "attempting to negotiate".

And if, after having Bettman tout the financial success of the league OVER AND OVER again since this past CBA went into effect in the 04-05 season, the owners feel they have to "blow up" the current model and re-start because of "Financial Viability" (aka team health sustainability) then WHY are the owners refusing to put in a Revenue Sharing system?

Both sides are to blame here, but if I'm "taking the lesser of the two evils" then I'm siding with the NHLPA
