Ok, but that just defines life. MLB, NHL, NFL, NBA - the rich get richer.
No league has a perfect system. Neither does the NHL.
So what is your solution? Let's stop arguing about right and wrong. Noone can win these subjective arguments.
To me the simplest thing to do in order to SOLVE THE PROBLEM is to negotiate off of the owner's offer. Had the PA offered ANYTHING other than flat salary plus raises, I would consider that as a negotiation basis - for example, a soft cap.
Since the PA has offered nothing but unrealistic proposals, I can't help but conclude that they don't have a plan.
