Give me ONE thing the players will gain that they didn't have at the end of the CBA.
If you consider not doing more damage to the NHL in the eyes of fans (and more importantly sponsors) a gain by signing a deal, well there's that.

What concerns me is that the PA has only been perceived as talking about money (in public, and "leaked" memos) and nothing else. If they came out and said "fine, we accept the 50/50 split, the make whole, and the revised revenue sharing formula. We accept no other changes regarding contract limits, arbitration, free agency, etc. " they'd probably win the PR war hands down.
