What hockey player makes minimum wage?

Minor league hockey is just as fun as NHL. The players make less, the teams make less but the experience is amazing. This lockout isn't only on the owners. The players share some of the blame. Greed on all sides. Owners want to keep the money, players want to be overpaid. It's a lose-lose deal for NHL fans.

Not to sound like a conspiracy nut but a part of me is wondering if the NHL wants the lockout to eliminate the entire season so they can contract some of the weaker franchises and go about business without admitting that Gary Bettman has been a cancer.

the ironic thing is that the less profitable clubs that are inclined to scuttle the season in hopes of reducing the palyers' share of revenue will be the ones the league chooses to contract. Of course, there's probably some tax loop-hole that will allow those owners to come out ahead of everybody after the dust settles.

Hockey is a Canadian game, Bettman is not. We need some one in the commissioners chair that loves the game not the power.

One does not have to be Canadian to love the game (if you meant to imply that Bettman stinks because he's not Canadian).

The game also needs owners and players with brains. Collectively, they have probably crippled the NHL at the worst possible time.

I haven't heard this mentioned, but unlike the last lockout, the NHL now faces a second popular NBA in LA, the Clippers, which has constant sellouts as well as a hip NBA team in Brooklyn that sells out most games so far. The Clippers were usually drawing less than the Kings and Ducks, but is now serious competition for the NHL.

NHL is missed even less in NY and LA, their important American cities.

The Knicks don't hurt the Rangers. Rangers games are 100% capacity. Rangers fan will return (LA maybe not at the same rate).

The reals losers in this will be the struggling markets.
