Yes and no. The big market teams are but the small market teams actually "makes" money during the lockout because they lose money when their teams were playing. And this is why we are where we are. The small market teams want more revenue sharing but the big market don't want to pay more than they are now so they want to take it from the players.

IMO, this situation was created by bettman through his expansion into the south and southeast. Those are the teams that are causing the financial issues in this lockout. Move some of them to Canada and the whole league would be better financially. But he's too stubborn to admit defeat.
