Of course, yet here we are Ghost, agreeing to disagree yet again. The only reason TNSE dropped $170M on a franchise was because thats what they'd already promised to pay the league, their asking price for the Yotes at that time. Are you suggesting that on top of the $170M Thomson & Chipman wouldve paid more, based on Forbes's average valuation of what is it this year, $230M?. They paid a reasonable rate of $110M all-in for Atlanta to Winnipeg, boxing themselves in with the $170M offer for the Coyotes which the NHL then extorted as a relo fee. How is it that the Thrashers, Atlanta, is worth $110M with a population 10X's the size of & importance of Winnipeg in the scheme of things?. Hell, its more valuable than 2/3rds of the league, let alone Manitoba, Alberta, Ottawa, Vancouver, Montreal. Its completely disingenuous, artificial & phony to claim otherwise.
