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'd imagine that's based on current ticket prices. If prices were around average to slightly above average NHL levels they'd probably do OK..... but selling out every regular season game would be pretty much mandatory.
