The CBJ would be high on any list for retraction, like it or not, if the Coyotes disappeared. Maybe not the first or second option, but I'd be hard pressed to name 3 or 4 teams in a worse situation, overall, then this organization, currently if the Coyotes were "retracted", so to speak.
They haven't won
They needed a bailout on a lease
They will continue to lose money pretty substantially despite the new "lease"
They lack the history of other clubs
They really have no nationwide, marketable players
The new lease coupled with local ownership doesn't guarentee this team is not near the top of any "retraction list", if it ever came to that. I guess what I'm saying is that I think there's a better chance the CBJ is retracted than relocated.
