No you don't. You keep a business you love for as long as you possibly can and try to fix it. You sell a business you enjoy only as a last resort, and when NHL owners have reached this point in the past, they've done exactly that.

In which case you're a fan in an expensive seat. Please don't even try to compare the two. The fan in "that special expensive box seat" gets no say in how to run the show, including taking a hand in deciding what players he'd like to see in his uniform.

No, NHL hockey might be their hobby but not merely "hockey." None of these guys has any interest in owning the Atlantic City Boardwalk Bullies. That's "hockey" too, and under your statement, the Dolans would be just as content owning an ECHL team as an NHL team because it's only a hobby for them. We both know that this idea is nonsense.
