The AHL is even more gate driven than the NHL. Playing without fans wouldn't be worth it. They don't have the sizeable enough TV deals to make that option worth it.

Agreed.

 

It would probably cost them more to play in front of empty arenas than it will to just cancel.

I wonder if NHL player salaries will have to be readjusted for the lost revenue.  I think the MLB is trying to figure that out with their players' association.
