2) The NHL announces they are now opening the bidding to owners who want to relo the team.

3) The NHL announces a deal with another city.

So its not our fault there isn't a lot of substance. There is only one party that can give us something substantive to discuss and they aren't doing it.
no no no -- you're confusing substance with news. your post above does have substance even though there are no news, and the converse very much exists too. there's a huge difference between stating an opinion that's very poorly justified, and laying out an (un)educated guess as to what's going to happen.

as for #1 above, there are still a lot of unknowns even with a shorter deal. the AMF itself still needs to be substantial, and there is no public information regarding why Jamison's deal fell through. why didn't he get the money? was the deal too long, the relo penalty too high, the NHL's asking price too high, or are all of these just insignificant details in comparison with the team's expected operating losses even under the new CBA?
