I can see why the players are upset then.

(The players have gone to 50/50. I personally always said they had to.)
They did have to, and that's why it isn't a concession. And yes, you can still have a negotiation based on the financial issues facing the NHL today. You wouldn't have CBA negotiations based on the players rights in 1994 would you?
