Why would he pay for a new franchise? Just wait, no rush, the new arena is still two 33months away. Chances are a franchise will need a great market, a tv deal and a new arena by then. Thrashers sold for 170m$, Blues for 150m$, no way this guy will be dumb enough to pay more to get an expansion team. No way. I don't believe this.
This guy needs a team badly. His entire media strategy in Quebec is based on it. He started a new sport TV channel with the hope of getting a team to fill the airway. He needs content badly for his mobile phones products. An NHL franchise come available so rarely. Trust me he will pay what it will take to get a team when one becomes available, expansion team or not.
