Every other league has a split around 50-50. Those leagues also make more money than hockey, meaning that they should get more profit (fixed costs being less likely to scale).If anything, the NHL should give the players even less because of this.

Other players in other sports find 50% to be enough, so yes the hockey players are being greedy.

I do understand though that the league should not expect all profit to come from cutting player costs. Revenue sharing should have been offered sooner and with greater amounts, also to try to match what other leagues have.
