I don't have a side in this, I'm just watching the show.
Because even Fehr knows that if they ask for more than 50% they'd have to justify why NHL players should be getting that high of a percentage when NBA, NFL and MLB players don't get that from their leagues, even though NBA, NFL, and MLB players earn far more revenue for their owners.

That's a debate the NHLPA doesn't want to touch. They know they have to go to 50-50. They've known it from the moment the NBA lockout ended.
