Regardless - in a gate driven league, consistently selling 16000 higher priced tickets (small size arenas with bigger arenas coming) will always be better than maybe averaging 12,000 (at a significantly lower price).

If the NHL was dragging its feet in this instance, it was (IMO) to reduce the overall revenues of the league going into the last CBA bargaining.
Absolutely. They could now relocate, increase revenue while keeping costs down. A good business strategy if I've ever heard one.

It was only at the players and fans expense....
