If revenues grow more than expected, there are provisions to increase the player's share to 52-54%.

All the benefits, no drawbacks.
Rather than debate blindly, I'm going to confess that none of that makes much sense to me.

You're saying delinked but still roughly equal to 50% HRR, but "roughly" means **** all. It's either linked or it's not linked.

The 3rd proposal of immediate 50/50 is even more ridiculous as it was on a single sheet without any concrete numbers.

Bunch of idiots those players are as 200 of them will mostly likely never play again in the NHL.
You haven't enlightened me any more with that. Sorry, I'm not criticizing, I'm just saying that it doesn't explain much other than to suggest that Fehr is doing one thing and telling the players another. My question would be: How the **** do you know that he's telling the players one thing and trying to swing something else by the owners? How do you know that?
