It is if you paid a lot of money into it, and then lost money on other investments, meaning you need to refinance, which is already done this summer.

They are in the black operating income, top ten in revenue, have a younger growing fan base, and arent a burden on revenue sharing. You cant find a different team to worry about? I mean, why exactly would the NHL move or contract a team that is making profit, has its own arena that it's tied directly to and operating, and is in a large market with more potential for growth?
As far as "faces of the franchises go", Marty is the face of the Franchise and aside from Kovy there is also a future possibility of a Henrique era in the future.....you never know...I mean, I hear he's pretty clutch
