Last time the players gave in to the owners, they ended up with the better deal. A smart player union would agree to a reasonable revenue split (50/50 is fine) and in exchange go after all the small things owners could care less about (contracting rights) but that drastically affect players.

Sadly, there aren't a lot of smart players out there. They are under the impression that, somehow, owners don't want to grow revenues and make more money (thus paying players more). Hamrlik, Neuvirth, Jagr etc... all got tarred and feathered by fellow players for showing moderation. They've drank too much Fehr brand koolaid to turn back at this juncture. I suspect we will lose the season, the players will break and be curb stomped by the owners yet again. Considering how that turned out for everyone the last time around, it's for the best. Just not much fun for the fans.
