The league is rather healthy right now (far better shape than the NBA). It is not perfect, and it never will be perfect, but lets not talk about it like it's a sick animal on the verge of catastrophe.
How many teams lost money though? It isnít as healthy as one might think imo. The big revenue teams carry the league. Attendance numbers can be inflated. If the nhl had a decent tv deal they would be in very good shape. The nhl outdraws the nba at the gate in most markets, their tv deal keeps them going.
