Good riddance one less Western Conference foe to worry about.
I'd put that more on Balsillie than Leipold. I mean, the guy did swear up and down at first that yeah, he'd be willing to keep the team in town for a few years at least. Leipold was just giving him the benefit of the doubt in exploring the idea, and usually I admire that.

I equally admire his sworn statement in the Phoenix bankruptcy court, as well. That brief review period did its job - it revealed Balsillie to be a lying *******.

I don't see any reason to be bitter towards Leipold. Trust me when I say that y'all could have had much, much worse to start out.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
