If you are going to argue economy and smaller markets hurting, then you should be siding with the players, because they are the ones arguing for $250 million in increased revenue sharing, more than Bettman & co.
The league is not making a tidy profit. Any business that is paying 57% of their REVENUE to the employees and then has large operating expenses on top of that is going to struggle to make a profit.

More revenue sharing among the owners is necessary, some of that should come at the expense of the players since it is their jobs that are being saved in the smaller markets.
