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

A 50-50 split in several years is not a true 50-50 split. It's like someone giving us money(say 100$) and I take 60 the first time, 55 the second time but the 3rd time and on i take 50. Did we get 50-50? No. I believe there should be a mechanism to respect contracts in one form or another but pretending that's 50% is wrong. Something needs to be done to split it evenly.
Deferal of the last 12.3% onto other years? Perhaps it counting as cap space sort of like a buyout? For instance, player loses say 1 million, in second half of CBA team pays him 1 mil back in installments, 1/5 a mil over 2 years like a buyout or something.
Players get their money, owners don't spend over 50-50.
NHLPA proposed something similar, but unless it counts on the cap I don't think it's fair because it's basically "pay us, and you still need to pay up to 50% after" which isn't true 50%.
