I'm wondering how lost fans, lost revenue, lost sponsors would benefit the NHL.
In the short term it won't. Long term it might.

A patch work CBA to save a 40 games season just keeps the vicious cycle going.

Both sides need to see what not playing will really do to them. It makes it even worse that they will lose two seasons in a decade.

They were amazingly lucky last time. They were lucky that fans came back. They were lucky that they had Crosby entering the the league. They were lucky that Outside Living Network became the NBC Sports Network.
