A lot of stupid NHL billionaires around then. Because there are a lot of NHL markets where it wouldn't take any kind of brain to realize that they aren't money-making markets for the NHL (at least not at any time in the short-term, perhaps some day down the road in the long-term), but still the owners stepped up and got involved in the NHL to have franchises in those cities. Perhaps I, like many of those same owners, am a bit naive, but I do still think that there are major league sports franchises often simply for the reason that there is a passion for the sport. Now of course there is a serious economic element, and no owner can seriously take on a franchise and continually lose tons for money. But if a system can be put in place that keeps losses at a minimum, then the atmosphere of NHL hockey can be given a wider audience.
