Why didn't Nashville win a Cup when they were in danger? Why isn't Columbus in the playoffs every year if the League fixes games so that clubs can become healthier? Florida has made the playoffs how many times since the lockout? How far did they go again? Atlanta moved after no success in the playoffs.

The NHL heads may hope that Phoenix wins so that another franchise becomes healthier (theoretically), but to turn that into a conspiracy theory is a HUGE leap.

Winning a Cup doesn't save a franchise. The risk the NHL would take to fix it so the Coyotes can win is not worth it. We're talking about a scandal that would effectively destroy the league if it ever came out, and everything comes out eventually.
