Why is there no concern over potential conflict of interest...or is it due simply to his lack of actual ownership in the Blackhawks themselves?
The NHL Constitution prohibits "majority" (30%+) ownership of multiple teams. Nothing about arena ownership. (AEG owns the Kings, Staples, and has been pushing to get a NHL franchise in their "empty of major sports tenant" Kansas City facility.)
