Mj...

an owner gets into it to make a profit. Yeah, a billionaire buys the club and calls it a 'hobby', but when you're spending hundreds of millions of dollars, you're looking to get a return on that to get more money. They want to win too, don't get me wrong, but they want to turn a profit. Heck, if it's true that Vancouver profited $25 million Canadian, then perhaps they could've been more active in the UFA market and fill a piece or two to put them over the top, while still making a profit, but winning a Cup.

No owner wants to take a bath in the end.
