08:16 AM ET 12.14 | While an end to the lockout would be greeted warmly by many, not all teams stand to benefit from an eventual agreement. A strong possibility even if there is a breakthrough in the four-month-old lockout is that the Blues won't benefit regardless of how negotiations end up.. ... Many believe the Blues are among a group of clubs not thrilled with the NHL's decision to increase its make-whole offer from $211 million, and while that proposal is reportedly off the table, it would likely return in exchange for contract concessions by the union. The resulting aftermath -- fair or unfair to players -- will be a difficulty for the Blues to foresee turning a profit, even though they have ticket prices ranked in the bottom-third of the NHL.

never liked revenue sharing...consider this, If a team is doing poorly;

1) Either the management/ownership is incompetent or;
2) There is team in a place where it probably really shouldn't be (not saying that about St. Louis by the way) that cannot support/sustain support. Not that this would EVER happen in Bettman's NHL

If you follow anything on here, mate, you'll easily realise none of us take one syllable of guff from Der Kommissar.

We all know exactly whose money they are talking about, although you may see a variety of opinions on here, you'll find none of us have the wool pulled over our eyes.

And Slappy couldn't agree more again.
