And for every two Eberle's making $6 M, there's a bargain Giroux making $3.75 M. In fact I wish that players could keep their 57% of revenue on the condition that they donate 5-7% of that to charity or put it aside for future player safety net funds.
If I am not mistaken, players got paid more than their contracts were worth last season.
I'm a big fan of the 'make whole' proponent, but only so far as it ensures players will not be paid very much less than their contracts or very much more than their contracts. Never made much sense to me that a guy could sign for 2mil and get 1.85mil or 2.15mil when he signed for 2mil. Nowhere else in the world can a regular Joe go to work and get that kind of increase in their day-day/yearly salary unless they own stock in the company and even then, that's not really your negotiated salary but something else altogether.
