Last season, other teams were at 70+ mil revenue while NYI was at 63 mil and this time the nearest team is in the 80+ mil range while NYI is at 66 mil revenue.

Bottom line - NYI can't get out of nassau fast enough to be financially viable.

Thank God for Brooklyn.

Yes, but also why the idiot owners MUST create a revenue sharing program that's fair for the bottom TWENTY teams. Without that then in the best case scenario you are going to see poorer NHL teams have seasons like the Kansas City Royals year in and year out. In the worst case you're going to see more franchise moves and possible contraction of one or more teams.
