Perhaps this is oversimplification, but the NHL has loaned Moyes ~$30 million, and now claims that they can dispense with the asset as they see fit. Moyes has invested/spent/lost some $300 million and hopes to get ~30 cents on the dollar back with JB's offer. The NHL/Reinsdorf deal would give him 9 cents on the dollar back....

I guess I see a huge gulf between a $30 million loan and, in essence, ownership of a franchise that has - by virtue of two offers - a far greater value (one of which is $100 million greater than the other).
