I've read in a couple of places that the NHL players had the best revenue split in NA sports. It isn't really true. The NBA players were making 57% as well until last year. Which means that the NHL was right in line with the industry in revenue split.

And anytime you go from 70%+ in share to 54% (initially), you're getting taken to the cleaners in the negotiation, no matter how necessary it may have been.
