Regardless, a threat from fans to "steal" a team isn't really a threat. They have no power.
How about we back the train up a bit? While I like this move to show the NHL they want a team.....they are AFTER an arena. Without the funding for an arena all of this is absolutely pointless. And from what I understand....they don't have the funding for an arena. So lets not worry about what team they are "after" quite yet.
