As the players consider themselves partners in this league they would have to pay their share as well

Seriously though, the NHL is never going to make a silk purse out of the sows ear that is some US markets. The league will continue bleeding through these markets as long as those 3 or possibly 5 teams are locked into having the lowest ticket prices in the league in order to attract fans, and the players still believe they need to be paid like the players are paid in the leagues that have huge media contracts.
