I always ask this, but where is Seravalli's credibility at? There is a lot of hack writers out there. Either way, that makes sense. I'm sure if Bettman asked all the owners of the richer teams, he'd get a response similar to this.

It's not constructive to sit out this long for a deal like that. Not for what amounts to a temporary weening to what you really want. The amount they stand to lose over a lost season or even if they start Jan 1st, is far more compared to 2-3% of the HRR over 2-3 years.

Sponsorships, ticket sales, lost ground in new markets. Not worth it.
