I can't believe for one second that Mark Chipman would stand by and say "ok I will be patient and be your back up guy and oh ya I will continue to pay more each year so that you Bettman can piss around losing more and more money". Notta ain't gonna happen. Chipmans offer is for $170 million that's it. He can purchase the Thrashers for cheaper because those owners can sell for whatever they want, the NHL has no control over that situation so give me one good reason why the Mark Chipman group would over pay for Phoenix. I can't think of any.

This is Bettman's mess and if he came to Chipman and even thought of asking for them to pay for his mess up, I'm sure Mr Thomson would have something to say.

Bettman is going to pass whatever losses on to either the City of Glendale or the new local owner, not to an ownership group that relocates the team. IMHO.
