My real point is, the NHL is doing pretty well. However, the healthy league is threatened by this lockout.

Don't believe the league is doing well? The league is doing great! Heres an article.

That article really had nothing substantitve in it. It discusses a few large salaries like Jagr's and Yashin's, plus discusses some attendance figures, then assumes everything is alright. Garbage article that offers nothing IMO.
