Seriously, that article sums it up as far as the wealthy teams are concerned. You seriously think New Jersey, Toronto, Vancouver, Dallas, Colorado et all care (assuming they are even or atleast a small bit in the black) about losing the season. They know it will hurt the fans, and some fans won't return.

That said, I don't think the owners as a whole will listen to anything that doesn't define some measure of "cost control" for teams like Calgary, Nashville, Pittsburg, and Washington. Look, if it was up to the some of the owners, they might prefer to keep it a market system, because they know they give themselves a much better chance to bring home the Cup, by expanding thier payroll with top talent (Rangers aside.)

Anyway...we'll see...next year.

more to come....
