Why would minny be happy?
They get screwed anyway. A lot of those contracts are signing bonuses which are paid anyway.
they save on salary, they get a bigger piece of the revenue sharing pie... so they'd would probably go from losing (example) 10M a year to losing 3M a year... considering most teams are breaking even at best, they're more than happy to have a lockout.
problem with this, and the's where the owners arent thinkging right IMO is that, while a few teams will be happy to save a few Mil, these team are still NOT profitable, they're just losing less money... and for them to lose less money it requires that those very few who are making $ to give away a bigger part of their profits...
