The reality? The NHL is making record profits as to revenue. Their losses are all due to their own stupidity.

Example: Minnesota's Craig Leopold hands out a $98-million,13-year deal to Ryan Suter and Zach Parise ( front-loaded, no less) last summer.

Remember the Duck's bidding war against the Red Wings for Fedorov? Literally, 3 months after, they were crying about being unable to meet payroll.

One owner raised Jagr's inflated salary for 7 years before he played a single game for them. Anyone remember what team that was?

Gotta agree with the players. Why should they foot the bill for the owner's stupidity?
Not quite. They didn't want UFA at 27. Was there arbitration before last CBA, not sure?
