Lockout stalls NHL season

Via: Buffalo News

A quick look at the Sabres' financial position shows that a prolonged lockout would not hurt the team's bottom line much this season – if at all. Last season, the team lost $8.2 million, the difference between $50.9 million in revenues and $59.1 million in expenses, team officials say. If the lockout lasts all season, the Sabres' revenues basically would disappear, but so would most of the team's expenses. The club would be expected to run a bare-bones, slimmed-down operation if there is no season.'
