The players share is slowly decreased, so as not to disrupt current salaries and the salary cap too much. Teams have ample time to deal with cap issues in a gradual manner. Owners are compensated for allowing the players more than 50% in the first 3 years of the deal (and the previous agreement) by getting more than 50% in years 5-9. By year 5 (presumably) HRR has grown enough that players will not see a decrease in salary anyway.

Okay! Let's play hockey!
Because the owners are human will view this proposal using hyperbolic discounting. Moreover, should the owners realize that this proposal benefits them in later years, a lot of them in struggling markets need the increased revenue percentage now.
