in the real business world, when a franchise loses 40 million and has never made you a dime (ever), you close it or move it...
You need to learn to read I said the league is not as profitable as it needs to be. 5 NHL teams are more than profitable enough but what about the other 25? What about the fact that it is taking 3years+ on average to sell any of the other 25. The NHL has run out of suckers who are willing to lose their shirt just to own a sports team. Fans often complain about the quality of NHL owners but you do not get quality people willing to buy unless there is a reasonable expectation of profit.
