I don't think that's the case at all, I think it has to do with escrow:

To ensure the correct revenue split, a percentage of player salaries could be placed in escrow. When total NHL revenues are determined at the end of the season, the escrow account is divided among players and owners to ensure that the target has been met.
So essentially the players want the rich teams to help out the poor teams to essentially balance revenues so they will have to pay out less in escrow.

I'm not sure, I could be completely wrong about that, but that's how I understand it.
