The Flames books and the Hitmen's books are separate. If the Hitmen are boycotted and lose money, the logical business move isn't to push to bring the Flames back to make money, it would be to cut back on the Hitmen's operating costs: fewer ushers, cleaning staff, concourse services etc. If the boycott causes the Hitmen to lose money, then what would be the point of the Flames paying for a WHL team to play out of an NHL arena at all?

Your boycott is misguided. Punishing the Hitmen and the people who work for them to try and send a weak message to the Flames LP who don't actually need the Hitmen going forward.
