Overall though, you're right, Geoff Molson is screwed by the lockout. Aside from the things you mention, the other factor is that if there is no season he is going to be denied a top-5 draft pick he would get from a season, and thus lose out on tens of millions of dollars in playoff revenue in years to come.
Bold above:

Molson had better lobby hard for a repeat of last years draft positions then. I would if I was him.

There is no reason to revert to a general draft with multiple playoff missing teams the winners. It's stupid.

But to add to the insult of missing a season when the Habs can afford to play and pay, The NHL will **** this up too and Habs will get screwed.
