As The Hurricanes Goes, So Does The NHL

The Acid Queen pointed out a very interesting article from the News & Observer,
Strange to think the future of professional hockey might depend on the Carolina Hurricanes. The Canes say the National Hockey League's new labor agreement, reached after owners scuttled the 2004-05 season, gives them all the tools they need to break even, if not turn a profit. But if they can't, they won't be the only team to fall -- and the 30-team league will face change even more radical than a season lost to a labor dispute. The Canes just might be the canary in the NHL's coal mine.
