It goes a step farther -- someone who purchases season tickets has a financial investment in a full season. They have paid their deposit and at least part of their tab already. Even if they are eventually due a refund for missing games, they have money locked up in the hope that they will get to enjoy the whole experience from preseason to playoffs.

Not only that, but on a broader basis the season-ticket holder is doing his part to prevent the conditions that lead to lockouts. If the Hurricanes consistently make money, they have less reason to put their weight behind a labor war.

Labor issues are part of the landscape of pro sports. It's been that way since the VERY beginning. Love it or loathe it, these are not kids playing on a pond for fun. There will be conflicts over money.
