I wouldn't be too sure. You'd have to be an idiot in todays business world to not be truthful in your reporting of revenues and expenses. The league provides the revenue and costs to the players association for every team. If the NHLPA has a problem with that negotiate it. But it isn't that easy...as soon as they start talking about negotiating revenues it's a slippery slope for the NHLPA. It signals the beginning of tying salaries to revenues and thus some sort of cap system. Something they won't do at this time.
