That depends on why they're losing money. Obviously the Rangers weren't all that concerned that they lost $40 million (which we all know isn't accurate).

Ed Snider saw a chance for the Cup, so he decided that it was better to take that chance and lose $2-3 million instead of make $2-3 million.

Peter Karmonos thought it was a smart idea to move a team to Carolina, and Gary Bettman and the Board of Governors thought it was smart to place expansion teams in Nashville, Miami, and Atlanta.


Everyone of thesewere were well thought out descions by supposedly very bright and successful businessmen. Seems kind of ironic that it's up to the "dumb jocks" to save the educated businessmen.
