As far as Dallas goes, if they're co-owners of the arena, that's actually a clear financial negative in today's NHL, as illustrated by the Devils' financial issues. The best financial deal would have them operate the arena like Pittsburgh or Nashville (or, I assume, Tampa?), but they wouldn't touch ownership with a 10-foot pole.
Phoenix had a great lease? The Islanders didn't get any money from parking, but the Coyotes had to PAY the city for each car that parked at the arena.
