- NHPA has proposed Bettman have access to tens of millions - say $80 million -- per year to spend on troubled franchises as he or some committee sees fit.

So the Coyote could get their regular revenue sharing of around $15 million per year and an additional $10 million or more from Bettman.
To get revenue sharing dollars they have to meet the revenue sharing criteria. The rumour is that along with more revenue sharing dollars, the NHL will change the revenue sharing criteria to make it easier to get those dollars. So you could be right... the Coyotes could end up getiing significant dollars ( ~ $20M ) each and evey year.

Which brings up a question some taxpayer in Glendale should be asking... If the NHL is going to end up giving say $20M to Jamison every year, why does he need $15M from the CoG each year? Should the AMF not be lowered to $6M ( which is the norm ) and let the NHL revenue sharing take care of any short-comings Jamison has?
