They know they cannot take fans for granted. That's why they resolved their lockout in time before the season started. Heck they resolved their ref lockout after fan outrage of the gb/seattle debacle!
that example really speaks to the difference between the NFL and NHL. the NFL saw they had made a mistake and were hurting the integrity of the game; so what do they do? they swollow their pride and admit they were wrong and give the refs their due. if that had been Bettman and the NHL there is no way they would have given in. they would have gone with replacements all year (or more) and the league's integrity be damned!! Bettman would have to win the battle.

the NHL, as professional sports entity hasn't a shred of integrity. it is, quite simple, a joke, a laughingstock, an embarressment.
