Interesting to note that the NHL wants a full 82 game schedule. Are the owners looking to recoup the $ lost or maybe so they dont have to reimburse the season tix holders?
They're definitely trying to recoup the as of now lost revenues. I suspect the players will try to bargain the amount of games down. If the owners gave a damn about the amount of money they invested in the players, they'd likely agree too. However, we've seen what they tried to pull earlier in the negotiations, so it wouldn't surprise me if they don't budge from this point.
