The franchise decline began when they left Downtown Pho for Glendale (A terrible move)

Then Moyes and Balsille secretly planned out to put team in bankruptcy court to try and bypass NHL bylaws

That is why NHL had to intervene ,, Balsille had already tried to move Pittsburgh and Nashville and lied to media/NHL/Fans twice

NHL has made it clear that there will never be a team in Hamilton (Effects Buffalo) especially not when it Balsille tries to circumvent the league bylaws to accomplish it

In end the Courts of US affirmed the NHL's rights and Moyes/Balsille failed

NHL had to take over control of franchise and have been trying to sell it ever since ,, They had a deal lined up with JR but Moyes/Balsille's lawyer intentionally leaked court documents about deal in process of being finalized that underminded the deal and led to JR pulling out
