I'm saying, nobody buys an NHL team as strictly a financial investment. There are many reasons to do it, including reputation enhancement, that are involved.[/QUOTE]
Nobody does much of anything for only one reason. It's a matter of whether or not the financial reasons were the primary (or at least an important) reason for wanting to own an NHL franchise. I think we could find more than one person who considers financial reasons an important part of why they own a franchise.
