So to truly get the game where it belongs, there needs to be a trusting relationship.
Without Crosby, Datsyuk, Malkin, Stamkos, Ovy, etc the league definitely takes a large step back and loses a good portion of it's audience but I'm sure many, like myself, would still watch. I'd expect ticket prices to drop significantly under such a scenario and the a new hockey league re-branding itself, essentially starting from scratch.
