These franchises rely on revenues generated within their building
. We're not just talking ticket sales. Food and merchandise also keep the franchise going.
I realize that scheduling is tight at the best of times, but we are only talking about a few games, not a league wide standstill.
That is very true and a good point to note. The teams make a killing on food and concession sales, especially draft beer and fountain soda.
The Devils have offered all ticket holders of last night's game a choice to attend one of three future designated games, so I think they will recoup most of the lost food and merchandise revenues they lost out on last night.
