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.
No way I'll ever believe that statement. Perhaps they lose less money during the lockout...but they still have all sorts of expenses (arena leases are quite costly) and ZERO income from TV/tickets/concessions.
