They couldn't care less about the fans, they just want to fight over the money that is spent by us to enjoy the sport.
I disagree. Based on the freshly negotiated deals with NFL and NBA the market has been set that players should get 48-50% of revenues. The NHL is overpaying and all the NHLPA is doing is distract from that fact. They have no grounds to ask for more.
