Only $40 million plus in handouts to be a possible break even business.
Pass the hat around the dressing room and the others guys can keep this disaster afloat.
I'm not sure why you would applaud me as I think Glendale is a terrible location for an NHL team and that the team would have been relocated a long time ago if it had been subjected to free market forces. I highlighted this point in the past although I post less often now.
Glendale decided to massively subsidize the franchise - otherwise it would have been moved a year after the bankruptcy.
My above posts are simply trying to address a new factor which is being largely ignored in this thread - the likelihood that the bottom revenue teams will get $20 million
per year under the new CBA with few, if any, performance targets. That could be a factor in the viability of the franchise.
For the avoidance of doubt, I would like to see the team moved to a better market.
