You draw a direct cause and effect between management competence and revenue at every turn that simply does not exist. One could argue that at least one of the most profitable franchises has management that has been average at best since the last lockout.

Phoenix is obviously not all that profitable. Is their management team incomptent? Not when it comes to the on-ice product.

Why is that? Could it be that they are in a market place where their customers will accept mediocrity? Why can't teams with below average success on the ice, yet large revenues, compete on a level playing field when it comes to acquiring talent?
