Who's side are you on if you were forced to pick sides? The owners? ... or the NHLPA?

So, yeah, playoffs count as part of the players' 57%. If they played under the current CBA while negotiating, to then strike for the playoffs, they would lose as much of their share as the owners would lose of theirs.
yes but if the players earnings equal the 57% of the regular season revenue before the playoffs then the players get back there withheld money the so called escrow. that is my understanding of how escrow works ,and if its right then the players lose nothing by striking and canceling the playoffs.
