The NBA is the most comparable sport to the NHL in terms of economics.
i'm not looking to compare; only pointing out that MLB didn't get 'killed' by fehr and obviously is in good shape right now; comparatively to the NHL, which has to jeopardize an NHL season to fix it's numbers. Prust was just responding to Paladin who said Fehr is going to kill the NHL like he killed the MLB, which is obviously not true.

Or you can just look at their market share when it comes to entertainment sports. Something the NHL doesn't have, and needs. The NHL has been basically running the books in the Red just to potentially grab some of that market share.
