Here is my biggest problem with this article taken right from the source.
If, say, Florida, Phoenix and Anaheim move northwards, that would greatly reduce the biggest globs of red ink losses from the NHL. Then, say, the New York Islanders, Columbus Blue Jackets, and Buffalo Sabres – also all losing $10-million-plus – improve their businesses and benefit from some increased revenue sharing. Combined, the NHL as a financial enterprise would be considerably strengthened.
Who is this Todd Jewell, NHL Owners, NHL Players, stupid northern fans to say who moves and who doesnt and who gets to benefit. Why should we kill Anaheim to save the Islanders? Who makes that decision? Does it seem fair? Absolutely not.
Also as i brought up in another thread the disparity between rich and poor team mirrors the disparity between rich and poor people in America. The numbers are startling similar. Why in the nhl is it ok for team genocide to occur when in Canada or in America the rich are asked to support the poor. Hypocrisy at its finest.
