It makes me wonder though... is the 50/50 split a red herring, and it's really the yearly variance / cap circumventing contracts what the NHL's really after?
pretty easy? They were fought tooth and nail by the PA. They just won the arbitration. They then made a makeshift agreement with the NHLPA that would have covered the Suter, Parise contracts. NHLPA would have fought them again if they didn't approve them .
