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.
I really hope the asking fee for a franchise will be around the numbers you evoked. As for the bolded, what worries me is that Bettman doesn't seem to be in a hurry to move money losing franchises, doesn't he
