Big market fans are not getting screwed. Their team's GM can compete on an level playing field with all of the other GMs. The NHL is a league where revenue is driven by the gate, not TV dollars. To get gate revenue, you have to ice a competitive team, or at least a team that the fans believe the organization is building to be competitive in the future.
Maybe Toronto fans should stop paying for their crap sandwich and not show up to the games if they don't like the ticket prices.
And I think if the Rangers owners want to pay to their players what they can afford, they should
And if Nashville doesn't want to pay their 3rd liners $4M a year, they should stop offering those contracts.
Once again, it's okay for you if owners benefit from the free market. But not the players.
