The players would probably counter with something like 51%, but getting there over a few years with 2% annual raises until revenue growth catches up rather than immediate pay cuts. Also, like nba, there should be some sort of capping on escrow. Perhaps 5 yr max contracts for non-ufa's.

Also, is revenue sharing going to work with those numbers or is it just punting it down the road another 6 yrs. If the players take a pay cut, do the leafs, rangers, habs, canucks, bruins, flyers get a saving on payroll or does it all go to revenue sharing. Do they actually like solve the problem or worsen it again?
