Have you checked on the decline in value of a franchise like Tampa? Further, seeing how much money has been sunk in, and not a cent made back?

The players are fighting not just for now, but for the future. They also want to break the cycle of lockouts. And they are galvanized by Bettman. Right, wrong or indifferent. If this season is canceled, as many as 5 franchises could be in trouble. And they are mostly the creations of Bettman's expansion. Explain to me how it makes sense whatsoever for the owners to continue down this path?

Point being is that neither side makes any sense at all.
