the difference between them is its possible for the owners to lose money, whereas the players can't. They cannot actually lose money out of their pocket. The players determine their own salary by their actions, the owner has less direct control over their profit or loss, its all about what others do (players, fans), so security is, and I think should be, more important for owners than players speaking solely on the idea of cutting back salaries in the NHL.
