All the NHL players in the world could die tomorrow, and they'd just end up replacing them with the next best players and we'd all still watch. The players themselves really don't matter in the end.
That could be said for just about everyone walking the face of the earth, let alone the team owners. Heck, Ford survived Henry Ford and Apple will survive without Steve Jobs.

Step into the History of Hockey section and say that the '82 Oilers and Islanders lacked skill.
Worse nutrition, conditioning, game plan? Yes.
Less skill? No freaking way!

It gets pretty hard taking the rest of your post seriously...
