I ask because I see this forming as a consensus, and TBH I can't be bothered to look into this process with too much effort because each time I consider how millionaires and billionaires are fighting over the middle class's money, the inner ice-hockey-road-hockey-cheering-on-the-Jets child inside me dies a little bit more.
Well, it doesn't matter how long the process takes - what matters is the result. A pro-TNSE result is the best we can hope for.
NHL hockey in Canada is big business - over $1 billion per year. Getting tickets to a game is not economically feasible for a significant portion of the population. That's not going to change no matter what happens at the bargaining table...but don't tell your inner child that!
