Though I tend to agree with you, sorta. The only way the players get a CBA with a share of 50% or more IMO is if they present a deal in short order that takes a big step closer to 50%....big enough that the teams making money under the prior CBA have a strong motivation to keep the train rolling.
I meant favor as in the NHL gets a larger percentage. I forget the quote, but Bettman has alluded to it a couple times (I think?).

50-52% favoring the players is very possible but only if they negotiate it soon.
I'd be surprised to so a 52% for players, anything over 50-50, in my opinion, won't happen due to owners/NHL.
