the lease will give them 15 mill per season...cuts losses to 10 mill. The new cba will include a lower cap and increased revenue sharing... they are looking at possibly 10 mill in savings so that would make them a break even team. Combine this with proper ownership and marketing, and an improving economy there is the potential for the coyotes to be long term break even/small profit team. Its just sad that the team would require so much welfare from taxpayers and fans from places like vancouver who have to pay $100+ for their tickets in order to survive.
