NHL proposed a $60M cap to set team spending guidelines; all the $60M cap does is decide how teams can allocate money up front. With a share that is a fixed % the actual amount paid to players will always be 50% but the $ can fluctuate. If each team spends $50M ($1.5B) but actual revenue comes in at $3.4B, the players real share will be $1.7M and the players will collect $200M prorated out.
