. I stand by my previous post.
Q I've been told that you've lost $10 million in each of the last two seasons. Can you talk about that?
A No, I don't think it's appropriate to talk about business. Fans don't want to read an owner talking about [losses]. I would just say there's 25 teams in the NHL that would love to have the business we have.
Q Fans do have a perception though that you're just making piles of money.
A That is not accurate (laughs). Fair to say that is not accurate (laughs hard). But, look, we have a great ownership group, and like every team in this league, it hurts [financially] when you don't make the playoffs. If we make the playoffs, we're going to be in great shape. But we're committed long-term. There's no, 'Hey, this year we have to make the playoffs from a financial perspective.' We're fine financially.
