Not really. The lease is with the team, not the league. If the franchise goes belly up then that lease essentially means diddly in the end if no other individual operator can be uncovered - one willing to assume the obligation. The NHL doesn't have a lease in Columbus, but rather, an individual operator/holding company holds the lease.
