Winnipeg should have to wait its turn here, other teams are not going to accept a CBA deal that may be unfavourable/ill-advised in the long run just because Winnipeg was anxious to keep their newfound momentum going.

The guy may not have the best people skills, but I think a lot of this is just looking for a new scapegoat since everyone is getting bored of blaming Bettman for everything all the time.
Why not? The reason a number of teams are losing money is due to poor fan support. Why should a team who's fans wholeheartedly support it suffer, just so teams with poor fan support can get a few extra dollars out of the players?

The Canucks will continue to suck until the day Benning, Weisbrod, Linden, and Desjardins are all fired.
