I think that the amount of financial pain that a $200 million albatross that is not making a single penny is being greatly understated. NO billionaire in the world is goingto sign up for that. And think of a place like Buffalo and Tampa. Think of the money spent with NOTHING coming back.
This is laughable.

They've been listening to Fehr for 2 months, you think it'll last 2 years?! You think the 90% of the PA that cant get a job overseas is going to go that long without an NHL paycheck? Again, laughable.

Several of the owners operate at a loss - these guys are actually saving money by having no hockey played.
