The NHL =/= hockey.

Hockey is doing just fine. It is perfectly healthy.

The NHL? Not my problem. It's only purpose is to make money for itself. If the NHL business is operating, great. I enjoy it. If the NHL business is not operating, it has no effect on my view of the game.

I don't know where people get this idea that the NHL is the embodiment of the game of hockey. Maybe because, and "i'm not saying this to be stuck up", but you're not really a hockey fan so much as you're an NHL fan.
