You have still yet to point out these failures. They grew to 30 teams, they increased revenue substantially, they got a tv contract signed.

Certain teams being bad a lot is not a failure by the league. It is something that comes along with a league.

But the league is paying its part. And it's making a hell of a lot less than the players already.

No, teams that come into existence often go through an adjustment period. That's perfectly normal. And I didn't say it was all luck, but chance does play a big role. Also, they are not lucky they are good, they are good because they got lucky. There is a difference.

If you hadn't noticed, a lot of hockey is luck. We as humans can't evaluate others and hockey skills at a detailed enough level to have it not be.

Sometimes bad GM decisions play into teams being bad as well, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are a bad GM.

As they say in the new movie Wreck It Ralph, "you may be bad guy, but that doesn't mean you are a bad guy".

And the occasional bad GM is not something that can be foreseen or helped, so it is not on the league.
