From TOR board:

“The NHL made a mistake in overexpanding to bad markets, and now it’s trying to make the players pay for that mistake,” said Raymond D. Sauer, president of the North American Association of Sports Economists and chair of the economics department at Clemson University. “It’s that simple.”
pretty much what i and others have been saying.

and why J.Jacobs is in an ok position to take a loss this season:
The Bruins are better positioned than most NHL franchises to generate local TV money because Jeremy Jacobs owns a 20 percent share of New England Sports Network, which broadcasts most of the team’s games. That means the team will survive and probably do well, no matter what damage the current stoppage wreaks on the league’s fan base.
