one more reason why i'm having a hard time seeing this from the owners perspective
The owners own the business. They can pay their employees what ever percentage of revenues they like. That's what happens when you own things. If the employees don't like it, play somewhere else. Nobody is forcing them to play in the NHL. Plus the owners have all the risk. You don't see Scott Gomez giving back money from his contract after he didn't score in a calendar year. If they want a 50/50 split, that is their right. However, a contract is a contract. They should be honored. I think there is a deal there to accomplish both but I don't think the stand off is about this. Both sides want more and it is now about winning and losing ten fight rather than settling it fairly.
