I also understand the players ' perspective as well. I don't understand why fans just expect them to reduce their portion and players ' actual salaries just because the owners want to pay less.

I also understand a lot of teams are not profitable and its reasonable to believe something needs to be done. I heard Jimmy Devellano say the Red Wings lose money if they don't reach the second round of the playoffs. That is a problem, albeit a different problem.

That was the Wings position during the last lockout. I don't believe it applies to their situation under the current CBA, tbh.
