As the NHL keeps getting bigger as a business, there's a worry that players might not be getting their fair share of the money coming in.

Even though the league is making more money and talking about expanding with big fees, the salary cap isn't really going up. Marty Walsh, who runs the NHL Players Association, is saying players should get some of the money from the league getting bigger. He's saying that players are a big part of why fans watch, but they're not getting paid as much as the league is making.
In an interview with Frank Seravalli, Walsh said he's fighting for players to get a piece of the money from the league getting bigger. He's saying that it's not fair for players to be a big part of why people like the league but not get paid more when they're negotiating contracts. With the NHL making a lot of money, he's ready to challenge the league to make sure players get more of the money.
Walsh is taking a stand for players, especially as he challenges the way things are usually done by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. More people are seeing that it's not right for the league to make a lot of money while the salary cap stays the same.
The only thing is, fans should brace for another lockout when the current CBA expires
Said Bladeofsteel
On July 10, 2020, the NHL and NHLPA announced the extension of the CBA through the 2025–26 NHL season.
We may see a lockout come in the 2025 season.
But with Walsh talking about these problems, fans might have to get ready for more challenges in the future. There might be another time when the league stops if the current deal about how players get paid ends, and the NHLPA and the league figure out how to share the money from the sport getting more popular.
