The players lose out on cash from one event...The owners lose way more than that.
Exposure equals money (eventually). The players put more in their pockets from every dollar brought in (in HRR terms of course) than the owners do. The players lost more from the Cancellation of the winter classic than the owners did (unless of course the cap is not linked to HRR). The players will lose more money than the owners do from lost potential revenue.
