at least they improved the revenue sharing greatly, so technically they're only asking for the players to foot part of the bill.
50/50 is in all other leagues roughly, players knew they would end up around there going into this.
I don try to look at it as fair, it's not really fair and I probably wouldnt be happy either, but I'd know that not negotiating with them directly would just end up in more lost money, I'd know that they have far more leverage than I do as a player.
Which is why I disagree with the PA's position, wait this out, lose far more money than just negotiating early in hopes of a miracle that the NHL will accept delinkage and a full 82-game season's pay for playing half a season!
