Hmmm. I thought what makes up “hockey revenue” and what doesn’t was defined in the CBA.

I’d very much like to know which side suddenly changed their interpretation and is making this an issue.

I’m sure the side in question would definitely not want that to happen.

This sounds like a good start to negotiations this spring…

The Sporting News’s Jesse Spector has more about this issue...

It’s the NHL doing some saber-rattling. It’ll get worked out but every year the league or PA are probably legally bound to remind each other that the CBA’s an armistice, not a peace treaty.
