They got $110 million because the NHL said that $60 million would go to them as a relocation fee. Also the NHL pretty much directed the team to Winnipeg. ASG basically got the team as a throw in when they bought the Hawks, neglected it for years, and dumped it the first chance the got. The NHL wanted to make sure they weren't rewarded for being bad owners. Jamison however is a league insider coming in and helping the league out of a jam so they maybe nicer to him and let him pocket some cash in the process.
