I must admit by memory I don't pay too much attention to the different $ figures in the NHL (total salary masses, attendances, profits, losses) too often. If you find the Flames figures, throw them my way.

One thing I remember is they had to solve that unbelievably dumb situation with Roman Tur-hack. Just one buyout on a stupid contract can set you back. The Flames have made some slight mistakes like that under the former regime. However they went pretty so deep in the playoffs, you'd think they would be profitable.

The thing with the Preds is that I have always heard they were more of a model franchise financially.The NHL has to work for teams who are spending smartly or we have a problem. Personally, I like luxury taxes mixed with some sort of soft cap. There are many ways to make things work but it has to work for everybody.
agreed. it's that mindset that allows me to grin and bear it through a lockout, and would like to see positive results, regardless of the time it takes to get them.
