A canceled season should bring a new hockey leauge...
Just once I would like to see someone who posts that a new league will start up to replace the NHL (especially a player owned league) include even the start of a viable business model.

100's of millions would need to be invested before the first puck is dropped. Who will invest and why? Where will they play? Hockey is already a 4th or 5th sport in the USA so who will watch? Who will sponser it? How will they counter the backlash from a lot of very rich and powerful men with tentacles through most media corporations?

The days of the WHA are long gone. At that time there were a lot of untapped markets, players were just starting to come over from Europe, so there was untapped talent, and players were grossly under paid. None of that applies any more.
