If the average salary in your fictional league is $ 500,000 then only $ 375,000,000 ($ 375 million) of that 3 billion dollars would go to the players. That's only 12 % of total revenue, the owners would receive 88 % of total revenue. Obviously that's not fair; if I'm paying to watch a hockey game, I want to pay the people actually providing me with entertainment: the players.
I'm not a huge supporter of the players or anything; they're just as much to blame as the owners.
Was about to say this. Essentially if that happened the nhl would be like the cfl, 2nd to the nfl.
