But I think the players did not propose a CBA where they get 50-50. The proposals I saw showed them getting more than half.
One day, the NHL will get a commissioner that will realize this sport is NOT the NBA, or especially, the NFL.

It is a niche sport with a small, but loyal following -- that just to happen to have, in my opinion, players that lay themselves on the line every night more than any other big 4 sport.

Bettman's bravado and reckless expansion early in his tenure are only compounded by his constant money grabs.
