Not quite so cut and dry. There is no president for this. 2 out of 8 years canceled? I would think that most of Bettman's southern expansion teams do not come back. And again, if this season is canceled, there will be no hurry for Fehr to start next year on time. Off course this is chicken and egg. IMO, if this year is canceled AND you loose a portion of the following year, you might as well kiss the NHL as we know it good bye.
This also does not speak to what happens to local economies. If the state of Florida suddenly has 2 hockey teams that are folding, for instance.
That is the one factor that is forgotten about. Yes, the players are loosing money. But the owners are watching their $200m investments shrink towards zero, while continuing to pay fixed costs. No billionaire wants that or will be able to stomach it for long.
This is all silly. And frankly that the NHL is willing to take a chance of navigating uncharted waters of a second cancellation of an entire season, seems so out of touch with reality..........When are these people going to wake up and find out that NO ONE is talking about them?
