It could easily boil down to sell now and walk away with some money, walk away 8 years from now and break even - and still have to find a new home, or stay, and eat some big losses.
As for a potential relocation for the team... Saskatoon.
Yeah the city covering any shortfall is likely to just help the team break even.
If the team stands to make a profit closer to home, then they should be relocated.
Saskatoon would make a lot of sense or even Regina, Lethbridge has been mentioned as well.
All seem like reasonable locations, I have a feeling they would sell a ton of tickets in Saskatchewan though.
