.5 of a second on Google returns stories such as this one...

So while it is great that the team earns money via arena operations, the fact of the matter is that the league is better served to be located in markets that make money on NHL operations; the players by extension are better served by having teams located in areas where the operations grow their salaries - versus contract from the percentage of revenues that the players' take.
So youre in favor of relocating all the teams in lose money? Which figure was it again only 13 teams in the league earn a profit?

Your ideas are golden in theory but not applicable to the panthers in the real world. sorry.
