The ****** conversation with the NHLexec said it was insulting to probe that question of revenue (it could be seen as calling the owners liars). Maybe the owners don't by right have to disclose or open all their books -- but it certainly could be seen as a good faith gesture. It would be utter poppycock if the owners had player/hockey related revenue streams existing outside of what they are defining as revenue under the CBA.

I do not see a lot of ink being spilled on the question (or I am not looking in the right places or misunderstand the complaint somehow).
If you want to use the owners' other ventures, why can't the owners ask for some of the players' endorsement money? That's related to hockey.
