How do you know that?? I think you are generalizing owners.

In many markets, ticket prices are too high. Thats why fans aren't buying every ticket in the stadium. Its too expensive to go to games in the NHL.

Owners also understand that the majority of their revenue comes from ticket sales. So if they are stupid, they will overcharge ticket prices and no one will go to the games.

Right now, the ball is in the player's court. They have to agree to cost certainty. After, the ball will be in the owner's court. They will have to agree in many markets that ticket prices are too high and that they will be lowered.

I guarantee you that if a plan of cost certainty is agreed upon and the owners don't cut ticket costs, then the fans will potentially boycott buying tickets.
