Kings have never experenced an ownership mess like the Coyotes have.

I'm willing to bet too that these prices would be higher as well if Coyotes never went into bankruptcy.
While our ownership mess wasn't quite as bad as what's happened to the Yotes, after the '93 Cup loss McNall gutted the team en route to Bankruptcy. For a few years the team was in ownership and payroll limbo. We were lucky that AEG saw the bargain price they were selling for and realized they could make money. But it was a hard couple years to be a Kings fan watching Gretzky out there with very little support, and eventually demanding either a better team or a trade.

And since I'm on your boards, grats on a great game and a W.
