I always thought a creative solution would be to leave the current split of HRR as is at 57%, but also have the players pay 57% of HRE (Hockey Related Expenses). I mean it would be a cold day in hell before they agreed to it, but it would go a long way toward making them truly partners.

Even if we took arena costs out of the equation and left HRE as things that normal workers have to pay for it would still save the owners millions.

In the real world contracted employees do not get free equipment, transportation, accommodations, laundry, etc. It seems only in the world of professional sports are these perks offered. Obviously expecting the players to go from 0% to 57% is not reasonable, but you get the idea.
