We are way past that point already for a majority of this leagues ownership!


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.



neither should most of these owners!


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.
You're absolutely right! The Dolans ownership should not move past the procurement of a good table hockey game!
