Looks more and more like Barrie/Koules and the Bolts. They had to borrow from seller (PS&E/Davidson's widow), then did not have enough $ to keep the club running and had to borrow from NHL at the end. Bought for $190m and sold for $130m and left the Bolts in a shambles. You need an owner like Davidson (estimated worth $4b) or Jeff Vinik (est. $600-800m) that can afford to own a franchise and be willing to invest in the club.
