I think you are mistaken. The Flames own the Calgary Hitmen. During the lockout year Average attendance was 13,000 and sellouts for 3 rounds of playoffs. For most building staff it was business as usual. The Saddledome is a great place to work and Ken King is a great leader.
Whether you are on the owners side or players side doesn't matter. The Flames should not be critisized for this. All they are doing is having a plan for if/when this happens. And Ken King said it is their aim to make a lockout have as little of an effect as possible. Hitmen and Roughnecks are gonna be huge this year, just watch.
