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.
I guess only players are allowed to think about all profits? There was a time when players played for not much more than the average wage of the general population (who are still getting screwed on their pensions). What's your point? Times have changed.
Healthy teams --> healthy and competitive league. Who knows, with more owner share, and hence getting more money via revenue sharing, maybe even teams like the Islanders will be able to spend to the cap one day.
