So I'm just as in favor of saying sayonara to Columbus and NYI as to any other franchise - including Florida, but thanks regardless for presuming to know what I "trust" and "think". Nice rant.
You're avoiding the legal consequences of moving one of these teams. The only thing that makes the Phoenix situation completely confusing is they have now entered a period of time where moving them is an option legally. Florida, Columbus and the NYI now all have longterm lease deals. They aren't moving and I doubt very much that the other NHL owners want to pool together money to buy out not only the owner but the local governments that would come after them.
