Otherwise some franchises will be making obscene amounts of money.
The hardcore fan is the basis of any team, the people who go to games for business will move onto different sports when there is a lockout. A hardcore fan will always come back.

Trying to attract a business man who doesnt care less about the team is an incredibly short sited way of doing things.

Hardcore fans = more atmoshpere = more wins = attracts more fans = more money
suits = silent arena = less wins = less money = less fans

Ticket prices are just stupid in the NHL, if there is a cap then its only right some of that saving is passed onto the fans.
