Fair, but I think that this one is different. I think that there will be damage done to the hard core fanbase. One that a lost season will not bring back.

I also think that there will be permanent revenue lost. If you are HBO, why would you offer a 24/7 again? I also think that teh Winter Classic will permanently loose sponsors. Between that and lost fans, I think that the owners will be hurting for the duration of their ownership. In other words, I doubt that a $3 billion revenue stream will be hit again.
