from your pov it's correct, but, one has to dig deeper. If you are serious about the team, you could have played somewhere else for a year, while the palace was being renovated (in Belorus, Poland, Russia) just renting a palace. The problem was much deeper, the guy who was trying to start up Budyvelnik was no hockey fan, he wanted the palace to become his - expansive property in Kiev-downtown, once he realized he can't have it - he was no longer interested in a team.
