I also don't think they want other people thinking they can just pluck up bankrupt teams and move them willy-nilly without the NHL's approval.

But I have a feeling if this was Jerry Bruckheimer or Disney trying to move the Yotes they'd already be in their new city.
I don't know how Bruckheimer would interact with the BoG, but I think if he followed the process he would probably receive approval. For that matter, if Balsillie had followed the process the first time, he would own the Stanley Cup champs and they would be in Pittsburgh.

On the other hand, if Bruckheimer or Disney intended to move the team for 2009-10, or even in the short term (under 5-7 years) IMHO no way they get approved.
