The NHL has every right to charge relo fee's & can kill any deal whereby a franchise is being sold for relo & they decide they dont like the market or the ownership group its being sold to.
Where did this relocation fee come from? Judge Baum and bankruptcy court? I don't recall Phoenix/Colorado/Carolina/Dallas paying any relocation fees when those franchises moved. They all moved to new areas that had no other franchises close by.
