But if you live in one of those markets where there is a thousand's long name wait list for season tickets, what are the odds that those people are going to cancel their season tickets? None. It's an idle threat and the NHL and NHLPA know it. They're not going to give up their tickets and move to the back of any sort of waiting list.

If 4,000 people in Toronto cancelled their season tickets, you'd have 4,000 happy Leafs fans. If 10,000 people cancelled season tickets, you'd have that many happy Leafs fans. Same goes for Montreal, Vancouver, Winnipeg, probably the rest of the Canadian franchises. You'd probably have happy people in New York, Detroit, and Boston though not as many.
