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

People that ask: well since, by the logic above, the last CBA needs fixing, what proves that it won't be the same the next time around.
Answer: Nothing. But that doesn't mean they can't try to create the best possible confitions for the league to florish.
There will always be bumps in the road and there will always be tweeks to be made, to a certain point, that doesn't mean it doesn't have to be done.
The solution held by many in this thread is a 50/50 split of HRR. That is not going to create the "best possible conditions for the league to flourish". The ratio of HRR is important but not nearly as important as installing an NFL-style revenue sharing system where:
1. All broadcast revenue is shared equally
2. All merchandise revenue is shared equally
3. All gate revenue is split 60/40 with 60% going to the home team and 40% shared equally.
