They lack leadership and vision at the top, are being held back by archaic thinking, they are reactionary instead of progressive and they treat their employees and customers poorly.

When your a fan of the players your much more likely to overpay for their services and when it comes to CBA negotiations your much more likely to sign a deal that's better for the players than yourself.
Owners don't sign deals, they hire people to sign deals, or at least they should.

Grinding your employees is not the only way to increase profit, the NHL just isn't smart enough to figure how else to do it.
