i dont see how the owners get a cba with rollbacks or reductions in revenue percentage of the salary cap with salaries and going thru the roof with both ends of the earning scale going big on contracts.
MIN shouldn't be a team that gets killed. They're the "State of Hockey." They have the ability to sell out every game.

But yes, the hypocrisy of an owner publicly crying poor and then spending as he did is rather amusing. Doesn't change the financial reality of the league, though.
