Revenues go up yes, but that doesn't mean anything, considering costs across the board have also spiked. Yes they make more revenue then before, but they also have to spend more on the same things that costed way less 6 to 7 years ago.
How does revenue and profit have anything to do with my post? I'm the last guy you have to preach about that. Travel costs and arean costs are non negotiated business expenses. Owners have direct control of their spending. They spent without predicting the ramifications. All because they are having pissing matches with other owners with bigger dicks.
Also, the only blame I will give GB is his purposely manipulating how good of a job the NHL is doing. He led everyone to believe the NHL was making money. He preached "record revenue". That is carefully worded in order to make him and te NHL more desriable than it was. No other league feels the need to say anything like that. That stuff bites you in times like these because smart people on the other side will use his words to media, regardless of the true meaning of them.
