So they take-away from HRR (a cost/income relationship that is specifically spelled out in the CBA) but it has no bearing on the players? You must work for Bettman.

Again, as a player you would never want to open that door. I guess they are lucky you are not determining these things for them.

As for trusting players more than an actual businessman in terms of franchise location...well I'm going to let that statement speak for itself.

Atlanta will totes work,bro! The league needs Phoenix! A team in Hamilton will be top 10 in revenue but we'll ignore that market at all costs!

Oh and we should totes invite Boots Del Biaggio into our club!
