woah! so many billionaires out there right? how many of them do you think care one little bit about hockey? how many of those who care care enough to lose money year after year after year while the new league tries to get it's legs under it? i'm guessing maybe one or two insane people who wouldn't be able to get any municipality of any size to deal with them.
