Oh wait. You're in that camp that believes the Oilers are one of the most profitable organizations in the league, right? That we're a model of efficiency?
If we are as viable as the Panthers then Katz may as well close up shop and be done with it. The Oilers have room to grow revenue with playoff appearances for one thing. For two even if they only keep the gate from a new arena that will mean roughly 1500-2000 new revenue generating seats for 41 guaranteed games. That can't hurt. Even if we aren't the model for profitability we are far from mirroring sun belt teams. If the financial model is that much in trouble Katz should sell the team for a loss and wash his hands of this money pit.
