I'd rather go Russian Billionaire in the BPL on those second rate franchises, poach all their star talent and watch the Leafs crush those teams night in and night out and run out of space for championship banners in the rafters.

Parity flat out sucks.
That sounds nice.

If the owners didn't lock out the players over money, then why did they?

It is true the owners are not looking to get rich off owning an NHL franchise. And there was a time when a franchise was just an expensive toy. Now they aparently need to all make a profit.
