Schmitt Ballin': NHL Players’ Union May Dissolve
The NHL lockout may be nearing its end. A new development has emerged that the players’ union may end, meaning that the players would no longer have the ability to collectively bargain. The players currently earn 57 percent of hockey related revenues, while the owners make 43 percent. If the union ended, the owners would inevitably earn more, but it is uncertain if they would achieve their goal of splitting the revenue 50-50.
