It it healthy to keep catering to these teams that seem like they can never make a profit no matter what deal is signed?
It does seem like the broke teams are calling the shots more in the NHl which I find odd. That happens in no other sport
Even a league with absolute central control, and a tiny salary cap (MLS) understands the inherent value in making money through the success of their large markets. They understand that "parity" is not the best route to success and growth.
It helps, but the fact remains that success in places like New York, LA or Chicago is simply more important to the league than success in Columbus, Salt Lake or San Jose.
