The NHL is making themselves look second rate with this "class" act, combined with a lockout every 4-5 years. If it weren't for the Winnipeg Jets being back in town, I would be done with this joke of a league. You've got a bunch of overpriced overpayed players who couldn't make it in the KHL (see Evander Kane), a bunch of owners who are subsidizing half a dozen teams, and a commissioner who probably doesn't even know how to play the game.

The league hasn't shown near enough dedication to keeping teams where they are previously, why now? What makes Phoenix so special? The market obviously doesn't work.
You and I are agreeing. when the league bent over backwards for the Oilers (and had they done so for the original Jets) that would be justified because those cities had fan bases that had supported the teams. Phoenix? No
