You misread me, but I can see how that could be. In hindsight, it was poor sentence structure on my part. The "if" in my sentence meant "if there's pressure...," not "if the pressure that is there...." I wasn't making any claims about the Lightning, just speculating that the new owner might want to get out from under that particular contract. Sorry for the confusion.
