Saskin did great for the NHLPA in the last CBA. He took advantage of owners being blinded by getting the salary cap. He got the UFA age reduced by 4 years and in some cases 6 years, got a favorable percentage of revenues, kept salary arbitration etc.
I do agree that the NHL wants to take a lot of that back and THAT is not fair. I agree with the owners that a 50-50 split is necessary but I would not mind keeping the other things as they are and just put a 5% variance in the contracts to avoid LONG term deals and front loading.
