if the rangers, canadians, and maple leafs were giving my team more money than it cost me to have them in the league than it makes sense to keep them than otherwise throw them out. And the islanders are moving to NYC so I won't lose out on that tv market and that would help keep another league from forming with a team in new york.
That owner can start his own league then. There's no reason why the highest valued franchises should be sacrificed so his $80 investment will flourish through anticompetitive practices.
Everyone had a chance to do their due diligence before buying into the league.
I can't believe I even have to argue something like this...
