That's not entirely true about the players, both sides have essentially agreed on 50:50, the issue now is honouring the existing player contracts and how much each side is willing to give there.

I'm pro player in this whole debate but I agree with you about Fehr, he's really starting to piss me off. I wish the NHLPA would start making proposals that gets them to 50:50 without the assumption of revenue growth. Because the longer this goes, the less revenue is going to grow which widens the gap between what the players and owners are offering.
