How does the Canucks 50% sale affect Bettman's credibility??

Everyone seems to argue over whether Forbes was accurate or not, and whether Leavitt was right or not. The problem is, there's just about as many ways to define 'Hockey Revenue' as there are people bickering about it.

However, I do find it interesting that Bettman talks about how the league is basically about to crash into the Sun, yet the Canucks sold 50% of their franchise for a rumoured $115-125 million.

I don't know about most of you, but the idea of paying millions of dollars to lose money isn't my idea of fun. Oh, and last time I checked, the Canucks were a small market club.

On another note, how huge is the Raptors bench? They just rallied from a 19 point deficit in the 4th quarter to take the lead! Damn.
