    Regardless, I'm done with the NHL. Red Wings fan since I was a kid, but this is BS on both sides.

    I have to laugh at fans that don't understand economics. How many years have the Canes turned a profit, any profit, for PK? 2, that's right 2. I am definitely on the side of the owners on this because the players make 57% of revenue in the NHL and that's just too much. People talk about the increase in hockey revenue since the last CBA but what you rarely hear is that all 30 teams put together only made a profit of about 126 million last season. And all that profit was made by 12 of the teams, the other 18 either broke even or lost money. So the NHL can either raise prices to make more money per fan, or guess what? They can decrease expenses. And where are they going to decrease expenses? That's right, the 57% of gross revenue that is going to the players.

    Bettman says 'we have the best fans...'. The last lockout/negotiation was for the health of the league. This latest is so the petulant little troll can show what a great man he is. He is going to lose a bunch of 'the greatest fans'. Best thing the owners can do is fire him. My season tix are gone too, if there is a lockout.

    On a side note, does anybody know where I could watch broadcasts of AHL or KHL games?
