NHL Owners Making Fans Pay

from the Grand Rapids Press via Mlive,
It's a league that has been rocked by negativity and needs to win loyal fans back with something more than slogans. But the NHL is moving at Zamboni-like speed when it comes to public relations. Now, the NHL should show it really is a new world for the sport with a sincere thank you to fans. Ticket prices for all 30 teams should be cut across the board. No excuses, no whining about hidden costs. It shouldn't be left to individual teams like the Red Wings to make that decision. As a group, owners should establish a cut -- a minimum 10 percent for all teams -- and promise not to raise prices for at least two years. They worked as one to get an agreement. They should work as one now. Let's not lose sight of the fact that owners created hockey's financial house of cards in the first place. For a decade, they offered ridiculous multi-million dollar contracts to players who were bargains at half the price.
