If the NHL comes back, there has to be a big expansion.

Then why say that the team could bolt for 39 million? Im sure there could be lawsuits, the question is would they win. I dont see how the immediate area could sue for the jackets exercising their right to get out of their lease, irrespective of how devestated they would be if they left.
Say a 160 for the team and 40 to exercise an out. Thats 200 million. Not chump change for sure but still doable wouldnt you say?
