The problem with using hockey as a business is its not a good model. In business 10 companies can all make a profit, all 10 are winners. In hockey 1 team gets the cup, the other 29 are losers.

Hockey isn't a business, its an arms race. Why do countries spend billions on armies and nukes? Did the US and USSR really need 10,000s of nukes? Nope, so why so many? Because their opponents had them. It only takes one or two countries to start the whole arms race off and everyone else gets dragged along.

A hand of countries started the spending war and the arms dealers (players) are laughing all the way to the bank. Countries eventually work it out and sign treaties limiting arms, hopefully the NHL clubs will too.
