What is so "wrong" with a business owner altering how his business operates so that he can make a profit? Especially if his employees average $2.4m??
Who are hockey fans to say to a business owner: "you should be able to take a loss - no matter how big it is. You shouldn't expect to make money from your hockey team investment"
How many pro-player posters here actually own a business? What would you do if you were losing money? Keep doing business as usual...?
And losses to the players??
They are cutting their own throats by chosing to earn 0 dollars in NHL salary for a season, when an average career is 5 years. Not very smart business planning to say the least.
