TYING SALARY TO REVENUE AT LEAGUE AVERAGE DOES NOT WORK WHEN THE GROWTH RATE AT THE TOP BLOWS THE AVERAGE OUT OF THE WATER.

CBA needs one change: change "Midpoint is 57% average revenue" to "midpoint is 57% MEDIAN revenue.
20 of 30 teams have below average revenue. Use media, and 15 of 30 will be above and below, guaranteed, every year.

If the Bell/Rogers merger means TOR makes $100 million MORE in profits, they could move the average revenue so that 24 of 30 teams are below average. That can't happen if you use median.

Maybe when you get to that point you can talk about a realistic cap and salary rollbacks. But until you get there, salary rollbacks and a smaller cap is only a band-aid to the bigger problem.
Funny how MLB has more revenue sharing than the NHL and the NFL shares a ridiculous percentage of money (100% of TV, 40% of gate).

If the NHL simply did 100% broadcast revenue sharing for all teams, and switched to MEDIAN revenue for the midpoint, 29 of 30 teams could probably spend TO THE CAP. NHLPA wins, NHL Owners win. My team? Still waiting on a new arena (sigh).
