Do any of these businesses that you want to start suing the NHL pay licensing fees of any kind to the NHL teams for the right to do business in close proximity to their arenas? Or do they just sit back and take the money from all those extra customers walking through their doors on game days?

Punitive damages? Why should every company that is getting a free ride because there is an arena in their neighborhood start suing because the gravy train won't be stopping by for a while?

Locking out the players may not be the right thing to do, but the owners have the legal right to do so in both Canada and the USA. How can you ask for punitive damages against soomeone you are freeloading off of when they commit a perfectly legal act?
