    Imagine this:

    In the spring of 2005 a Wall Street firm offered the NHL $3.5 Billion to purchase the entire thing. At that point the NHL collectively had lost half a billion dollars over the past 2 seasons and was set to lose more.

    i would say that the NHL made a wise move not to accept that offer. Especially when most of the franchises are worth more than $117 million today.To me, with the exception of a handful of franchises, the NHL seems to be doing well. Revenues are up. The players & owners are making money. I am trying to understand why there'd be another lockout this fall.
