And this my friends is why this league is a complete joke, you have a team hemmoraging money in excess of $40M / season, yet the team still exists?

Things like this would never happen in the NFL, the team would have been long since moved after the first potential buyer balked at the table.
The NFL is a different business, they pool so much revenue and that you can make a profit before selling a ticket. I don't mind the NHL going the extra mile to save a team if the fan base has shown commitment like the Oilers in 97, but even they got weeks to get an ownership group together not years. Year 4 has to be the end
