ABSOLUTELY!!!

Therein lies the major issue here. The fans were back!!! So...efforts should have been started to get this done A LONG TIME AGO; to avoid having ANOTHER lockout, especially during a "bad economy", when people are not making all that much $$$ and/or needing work. My heart does not break for millionaires (on either side of this debate).

Let's not take sides for a moment.
Let's just try to remember the games that we've watched on TV. Were there any hockey rinks there were only 25% full? 50% full?
I remember some mid-season Islander and Devil games not being well-attended, but other than those games I didn't notice league-wide empty arenas. Did you?

So here's my question:
If the majority of the rinks are 75%-100% sold out + merchandising and concession sales and the owners are still claiming LOSSES....

Why are they and how COULD they be handing out these multi-million dollar multi-year contracts???

This just doesn't add up, in my mind.

Confused
