I don't see NHL owners coughing up $600 million + to get rid of the Coyotes, Blue Jackets, Predators, Hurricans, Panthers and Lightnings any time soon.
Oh yeah the money, that is a problem! Somehow the money may seem minor at some date in the future when these teams all die a slow agonizing death all at the expense of the existing money makers!
