Revenue distribution is something that the NHL needs to figure out. I don't see how it pertains to the CBA.
The issue is about the owners wanting the players to make less money than they currently are, and the thing that kicks my ass is that the players are essentially okay with that, but they want to meet the owners there in a few years.
I think the basis of the PA's stance of that they are willing to meet at 50%, at some point, in terms of negotiation means that they will accept that percentage. This should have become essentially a contract negotiation, but the league is locking them out for some reason instead of negotiating how they get there.
