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.
I don't know. The NHL couldn't bend over fast enough for Disney, placing the Ducks right next door to the Kings.

I know that McNall didn't have an issue with it and certainly that helped.
But it seems if you're buddies with the right guy, or have a massive amount of exposure at your disposal, the NHL will bypass any of their laws to fit you in.
