The biggest point Bla made was 'how much does it cost to run a team'. The players portion, save taxes, and good ole union dues, is pretty much all profit. The owners are the ones paying for the flights, hotel rooms, facilities, staff,player payroll, etc. I cant think its a small amount. The tv rights equate to nothing once you split it up among 30 teams....maybe 1 mid tier player. The last lockout taught me that I enjoy playing the game much more then watching it. Looks like they'll just be further cementing that, especially with Fehr at the helm
