While everyone is upset about not coming to a decision, and being very far apart on a new CBA… the time to take time to get the economics of the NHL right has come. We are on the verge of the third lockout, but I say… so what?
Let them hash this out… yes, the fans do matter (and we always do come back after things like this happen). The NHL has been riding alot of success, but that clearly is not translating to increased profits for some teams. Other teams are riding the wave to being very successful and making lots of money.
So, before I start ranting… and mumbling. Let this play out the way it was meant to. For the long-term success of the sport this needs to be done… and, be done right.
Whatever it takes… However long it takes!
