Pretty much the same for Kings' fans. AEG which is currently trying to sell all of their entertainment properties, including the Kings, never spent big money until the salary cap was in place. Once the team was in a position to make a sustained run they spent fairly close to the cap.

The reasons AEG is selling are likely two fold IMO.

1) Philip Anschutz is getting older and likely wants to retire, but he could have left the company to one of his children or let AEG President Tim Leiweke run the entire company.

2) The price of all enterntainment properties are inflated and it's time to sell.
