The long term issue for the league is supporting 30 franchises, some of which are in terrible markets. The 7% boost in revenue is huge for those little guys.

7% of the last full season total revenue of $3.3B is $231M, which goes right into the owners pockets.

That also means the players are losing that money. Regardless of any other details, 50/50 from year one is a major win for the NHL.
