He bought a hockey franchise in a hockey market. He hired quality management. He marketed his product. He produced a hugely successful team and sustained it for an extended period of time. Now his hands are tied and the product suffers. Teams like the Yankees and the NY Rangers have proven that simply spending the most money doesn't win you championships every year but with parity the cup is simply a roll of the dice. Whoo hoo! My team was the least bad!
You're going to cite baseball in your argument that parity is less exciting.
