Whats the word on revenue sharing?

What have people heard about the revenue sharing proposals in the negotiated CBA? How much will it amount to , who gets it, who pays, how will it be determined, etc? Seems all the other numbers have been discussed ad nauseam (cap, linkage, rookie max, etc). The amount of extra revenue that the small market clubs recieve could greatly alter their projected payroll, so why have so few specifics been discussed?

The only alleged revenue sharing speculation that I have heard of late sounded like a low-grade version of the revenue redistribution plan from the PA's December proposal. Instead of averaging up to $16M per team moved from the top 10 revenue teams to the bottom 10 revenue teams, the numbers of late have claimed between $5M and $7M be redistributed.

Again, though, until we read the signed CBA, we won't know for sure.

I think they'll do what the owners suggested in the first place.

Share playoff revenue.

From the Sportsnet Report

Sportsnet can confirm this system will not include a luxury tax, however revenue sharing will very much play a role in trying to sustain all teams' long-term viability. And while the revenue sharing component soon to be released will be more comprehensive, the most simplistic way to describe it is the top 10 teams will feed a percentage of their gross hockey revenues into a pool designed to prop up the bottom 10 teams.

Clearly, it's undetermined as to what dollar amount the higher revenue clubs can expect to contribute, however sources say these teams believe it will hover between $5-7 million dollars annually.
