You are correct.

However, the NHL (and indirectly the NHLPA) cares very much about their sponsors an advertising dollars.

And those sponsors and advertising dollars care VERY much about you and me. They are hoping that, if they shell out cash to the NHL, then we will go out and buy their product.

Saying things like "The NHL doesn't care about you or me, so they won't listen and we can't influence this" is a self-fulfilling prophecy. If people don't show up to games and the NHL loses millions in ticket revenue and advertising deals, do you think this will happen again so readily?
