Because the league threw away half a season of hockey to get unnecessary concessions -- and they haven't even address the most obvious fix: making a bigger gulf between the floor and the ceiling. Does anyone actually think the players would have gone on strike for half a season if the league hadn't tried to hit a home run, despite huge growth and record profits?

They threw half a season away out of greed. Some of us actually like watching hockey and find it irksome that the NHL can't get out of its own way (over and over again).
