I don't really understand why a gov't wouldn't put money towards this. The income tax generated by an NHL organization would more than cover the money contributed in less than a decade. Pretty good investment, if you ask me. Obviously, this doesn't apply to pre-existing teams, but in a case like Quebec, where new jobs will be created, I don't see why the Federal gov't can't contribute 200 million, as the 60+ million in players salaries alone will net them around 20 mil a year, and that's just the players. Coaching team, management team, support staff, arena staff, construction workers... Will all be paying income tax to the Canadian and Quebec governments.
