That's just some awesome stuff, right there!
Actually, it is 100% acurate. Look back at this lockout. People on this site were naive enough to believe that each game canceled would result in a 1/82 reduction in revenues and salaries, and it just wasn't the case.
NBC coverage is Thanksgiving weekend and then kicks up in January.
If they dropped to ~70 games, you would probably see a 5% reduction in revenue. 60 games, might drop revenues 10%. This is assuming the play-offs remain the same with 4 rounds of best of 7's.
And yes, they can fill the building with other events, but again for many owners it doesn't matter as they LOSE money early in the season. I am reffering to the months of October, November, possibly December. NOT talking about the first few months THIS season. Note: I am NOT talking about teams like the Leafs, Habs, Rangers.
