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.
Revenue sharing is a unique entity in the NHL. We'll charge $20.00 a ticket and give alot away for free. you charge $150 and give us some $$$$$.
Edit: Too expensive
