The war chest is irrelevent. All it will do is help franchises cover their fixed costs. Even without that teams will lose less by not playing a single game than they would if they continued under the current CBA or anything similar.

It worked in basketball? The average NBA salary is over 4 million dollars a year and players make more money that some NHL teams. If the owners won, i hate to see salaries if they had lost.
LOL. Yes, it worked in basketball. Their salaries are tied to revenues. What a stupid number that was that you brought up.
