It's a biased lottery, and some outcomes are vastly more likely than others.

At some point you will have to start following the news.

Both the players and the owners have made offers, and the players have offered a long-term 13% cut in salaries versus trend as a concession. It is up to the owners to make concessions now. The players are not asking for much: they want their contracts honoured.
The owners already proposed a deal which had 50/50 revenue sharing and the players contracts would be honored, their cap-hits would be reduced but the amount of dollars they were paid wouldn't be.
