I both agree and disagree.
Are we at risk 1 year into existence of losing are team? No.
But perhaps this is a sign that we have learned from what happened in the past. Fans are hyper vigilant about not losing a team, ever. No longer will we allow ourselves to be put in a position when losing a team is a possibility. Everyone is looking down the road at sustainability, and it makes me more confident that this team will be here forever.

I certainly agree the optics are poor though. I'm just glad people now acknowledge that the NHL isn't a god given right, but a responsibility and a privilege.
