Ok - a $20 million loss, when the league overall makes over $250 million in operating income, is a huge reason for picking sides in the CBA negotiation.

The league is already making money hand over fist. I wonder how much more they'd be making if Nashville had moved to Hamilton a few years ago, Phoenix moved to Seattle, and Carolina moved to Quebec City. There was a dramatic economic difference when Atlanta moved to Winnipeg.
Who knows - I don't. Hamilton is not a possibility. Seattle/Portland is an unknown.
