Clearly for all the record revenues a large number (if not the majority) of NHL franchises are not. If they were we'd be playing hockey right now. I don't give a crap what statistics Forbes or any other source comes up with, it's plain as day that a ton of franchises are having profitability issues.
How to fix that should be easy as pie. But for some reason, it isn't...
So you know better than Forbes and it is plain as day? Can you enlighten me which teams are not making money and where you get your info from? I hope its not teams like Minnesota who spent mega bucks on contracts because it will ring hollow with me. I think a big part of this lockout is that Bettman is trying to save some franchises that are in fact losing money from moving.
