Where in your post or my post was revenue sharing mentioned at all? I agree there needs to be more sharing.
The only thing I was arguing is it's going to throw off parity if some teams are giving the longer contracts out and others either can't afford it or are forced to give them out it is bad business for those teams. Actually it's bad business for all the teams but there is always going to be 1 or 2 crazy owners who just don't care and then the market is set. I stand by my statement "well if they don't wanna give it out don't" is a dumb argument.
***because of the insurance
Like the Shea Weber contract. Flyers push Nashville in a corner and they stood up. But it will hurt them in the short term. The went with the bigger picture.
