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.
According to the press, 16-18 teams are claim to be losing money. So, I disagree that this lockout is being driven by 8 teams.

It's more likely that there are only 8 or so teams raking in healthy profits and those teams are pushing Bettman to make concessions, get the season started.
