I don't think either side is "right" in this battle.
The NHL is asking for salary rollbacks, a lesser split of the HRR (I assume it'll end at 50/50, that's fair), and a cap on contract lengths. However, they're the ones dolling out these massive 10+ year contracts, they set the market value. They need to stop themselves from out bidding each other. I believe they also want to lower the cap and have artificial growth instead of it being attached to revenues.
Of course, the players don't want any of this, and they seem to be focused on revenue sharing to fix the problems. The two deals they've offered were slight variations, and they still easily favored the players.
