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.
What other leagues have might nmot be a good thing. The Pirates have not had a winning season in like 30 years and they havent lost money once since they got revenue sharing. Revenue sharing promotes mediocrity and makes owners just want to make money by playing safe rather then needing to win.
