I said he'd begin the process to relocate the team. It's no question that Jim is very determined. Even if it's buying out the other owners

While I don't know for sure, yes the local ownership group can intervene. But that's if they want to. It all comes down to dollars.

Let's be honest...the team would be his by now if it wasn't for Bettman and the league black balling him. Why would Leapold reject an offer that paid him almost double what the team was worth? He didn't care where the team played. Once again...all about dollars.
