Look at it this way... What the Coyotes have done on the ice for the last 4 seasons ( being quite successful ) has had zero bearing on selling this team. One trip to the Cup isn't going to change anything.
I believe it but I am pretty sure that would mean they did the study using the current business model. I don't think many teams make money. If improvements in the way they do business were made, I can see them making a profit.
Maybe starting from Square 1 would help but I think there is little time to make improvements at this point.
