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.
Huge falsehood. CBJ lost $17m in the last lockout. Just ask Doug MacLean.
