This goes for both the NHL and NHLPA. The stupidity isn't one sided here.

Round and round we go. NHL also wants contracting issues changed, but.... putting that aside, is this an eternal maxim? Players are always better off earning X% than zero, while owners are always better offer ratcheting their share upwards since X% for the players is still greater than zero?
