How is it okay that the owners of the thrashers walking away from the team is not a PR disaster, but the inability to find a buyer for the yotes or the fiasco that is developing in columbus is something to be avoided at all costs ?

The yotes are an embarassment not because the market cannot support a team but because the NHL itself couldn't make a go of it even after extorting the CoG with that ridiculous arena management subsidy.
Please explain the bolded part.
