The city should not be held hostage for subsidies necessary to meet the $170 million asking price. How many worthwhile investors would be willing to pay twice what the team is worth? None, and what we get is the clowns attracted to this situation thus far. The NHL is externalizing the cost of defending its franchising rights by passing it on to Glendale. An absolutely absurd and reprehensible approach, given that the city built a distressed team a shiny new facility. People here are cheering this on for some reason. QC and other markets should absolutely have a shot at a team, but not this way.
