No because it is impossible to know.

I never mentioned anything about abolishing the CBA. Only that the NHLPA should take more of a monitoring role instead of a negotiating role.

But a 50/50 split in an increasing revenue is hardly something that needs to be squabbled over. Also if a business wants to change their own contracting policies who are the employees to tell them different.

What it all boils down to is the player had every right to choose to play in the NHL or not. They chose to play and it is crazy that they know fight against a league trying to rectify problems. It is no secret that there are a number of teams in severe financial hardship and obvious to everyone that something has to be done.
