If you want the NHL to be as good as it can be, it needs to be a successful business in its own right. profitability is one of the best paths to viability, and viability is the best way to ensure the league is still around in 50 years.

Jacobs has a point when dealing with Peg's owner. They've been in the league for 1 year. I can see why a guy who hasn't lived through one entire CBA yet wouldn't have a good perspective on what was going on.
They might have a fresh perspective... they might offer a more complete idea of the situation. People like Jacobs are not interested in the complete scenario. They are only interested in something very small and definite and have no regard for anything that falls outside of that spectrum.
