The gist of the article is that the NHL is a profitable enterprise, as a whole. The problem is that its profits are unequally distributed. Until there is workable system of revenue sharing where all teams become profitable (which, in theory, is possible) the NHL and the NHLPA will be going through this song and dance every few years.
Even if the NHL is profitable they are likely to go to lockout every few years. Capital doesn't just want profits, it wants profit growth, and a good way to achieve that is to cut the costs of labor.
