I presume what Captain Bob means is that it doesn't do anything to address the main issue which is driving the financial problems in the NHL: massive inequality in total revenue generation. A 50/50 split, compared to the 54-47/46-43 range of the previous CBA, will merely slow the bleeding for the bottom-end teams, but eventually the continued revenue disparity being generated by the Leafs, Rangers, Canadiens, Wings, Flyers, etc. will have those teams right back in the same position: losing money because the NHL's overall revenue (and thus the cap numbers) are much higher, but theirs personally has not grown quickly enough to compensate.
