Bad example though because I cant find any parallel to the NHL where:

1. This cost cutting procedure is being done while Bettman crows about his record revenues

2. the go-to protocol, every time, is to cut employee compensation.
In my experience, cutting employee costs is indeed the go-to option for a struggling business. Wages are the expense that can be controlled the most closely.
