I dont think you understand the issues.
That's really short sighted. There is a huge opportunity in the US to grow hockey, even a small piece of the US sports pie is huge to the NHL. That means a lot of money to the Rangers and every other team, in franchise value and TV money. A lot of money. It makes sense for the Rangers etc. to keep those franchises alive as long as they are growing the game. Unfortunately, most of these teams are run poorly and not gaining the traction they should be. I don't think the Canucks would draw well if they'd been as bad as the Blue Jackets. These teams need some sustained success.
