No legitimate buyers are sniffing around because they refuse to pay twice what the team is worth. It's really that simple. You have to play this absurd long game of trying to con the city into subsidizing the NHL's legal costs to get the price to where it should be. Who wants to be involved in that? Worse yet, that ship has sailed.

If the team was $90 million + that GJ lease? Line out the door. Step right up for your subsidized risk-free shot at owning an NHL team. But it's not priced like that, and no lease will ever be that good again.

The silence right now is pretty telling. A shame, considering that the team is improving.
