I'm not sure what you're getting at here.

It's a minor miracle that some teams have thrived.
If I bought a Tim Horton's franchise I would take it upon myself to sign a good lease and hire good people. I would probably make sure I could do both before buying a franchise. I don't think other franchise owners would be willing to cut me a cheque if I signed a bad lease or hired poorly.

The NHL has way more poor teams than rich if you believe their numbers, how did those teams let that happen? Poor business decision.
