By the way, this is the least interesting debate on here, since I haven't seen anyone argue for the player's to get more than 50/50.

The NHLPA has also agreed about getting it to a 50/50 split.
I've proposed a 52/48 split in favor of the players with no "make whole" and the savings allocated directly to revenue-share. I've shown how you can give every franchise $10M to START with a program that doesn't just milk from the "rich" few teams. It takes almost every team from losing money to making money - and from breaking even, to making good money.

It was also a proposal that brought the two sides closer together in the decision-making process, in an effort to ensure that future negotiations can take place without the animosity that we're used to.

It's possible. In fact, it's almost simple.
