I do not disagree But I beleive that they will follow Fehr.

yes, but when the club has not brought in ANY income, value goes down Rangers are worth what? I do not recall, but lets' say between $400-500. Maybe more. If this season is canceled, the sole revenue that they bring in is from the season tickets being sold. The anciliary revenue is gone. But not teh anciliary fixed expenses. Now go to next year. Now there is not one penny from ticket sales either. Now you have an albatross of an investment and the fixed expenses that go with it, and NOTHING else. Not only that, but with two canceled seasons, the NHL will now play the last two years of the television contract completely for free.

IMO, THAT is what Fehr believes will eventually break the owners.
Follow Fehr? Yep. That's why he was brought in.

Even better, As the NHL revenues fall the owners will be looking to:

A)Raise the players share of the revenues?
B)Go for a 50/50 split with the players
c)Offer the players a deal in line with tumbling profits/losses?

Welcome to the nuclear winter.
