In fairness, the Wings being out about $75M in revenues from having no games also means they’re out a fair amount of overhead as well, so it’s not as much red ink as it initially seems.

The Wings are almost-certainly a team that will lose money from locking out. There’s an indeterminable number of teams that claim they would lose more money by playing under the old CBA than they would be simply locking out, eating arena costs and not paying their players/staff to create revenues for them.

In truth, there are of owners who also own the leases on their arenas who can otherwise fill those dates with concerts and make money as well (Sharks, Caps, Panthers, Rangers, and probably a good bunch more that I’m just not aware of)
