The reason why I say this is that by shutting things down for two weeks, the league is putting an awful lot into jeopardy.
According to a source with a good knowledge of the NHLís business workings, the league has a deal with its major sponsors that will pay it 100 percent of its money if the league plays a schedule of 61 or more games. If the schedule dips below 61 games, the league will receive only 75 percent of its sponsorship money
. That percentage continues to decrease down to 50 percent if the league only plays a 41-game schedule.
