I'm not implying as much. The team is an asset, and with the AMULA voided, it becomes a much more palatable, portable asset at that. The 30 year lease was awful, and was basically an anchor around the neck of Moyes and the team. It's not like Moyes did much to help himself, paying Gretzky $7 million a year to coach for example, but it's not likely he would have found a way out of the mess regardless.
