The NHL will take money from Glendale to continue the circus until QC is ready for their team.
I don't see the final credits rolling after this predicted end. I see a much different finale.

My gut tells me that a transaction will take place to keep the team local. I see the COG bending on its demands for a long term "locked in" lease. They will realize that a little bit of something is much better than a whole lot of nothing. Having a quality owner step in and make a go of it may turn out to supply long term ownership. It may turn out to be a dismal failure and relocation in 5 years. Either scenario is much more appealing than losing the team outright and having laid a 50 million dollar egg over the last two years.
