I'm thinking the NHL players realize who is their fan base. And the more the NHL caters to the "anti-fighting" moveon.org mommies and kiddies (and post-mature adolescent yogi's and psuedo-hippies) whose productivity actually counts against GDP...
The NHL must realize its economic place in the world and reset salaries that reflect its true earning potential. A first step in resetting ticket prices and preserving its true fan base that won't squeal at the site of blood on the ice.
Bankruptcy is the alternative. Good thing hockey is greater than the NHL.
