Yes. It is. So thats that. As the monies sitting there untouched 8mnths after the NHL could have easily withdrawn it, then I guess they dont need it, broke even on the 2011-12 season.... why then havent they long since notified Glendale, instructed the bank to return the funds to the City?

Yes, he did tell the BOG's precisely that, purchased the team & has been covering costs through a line of credit. Like you, I too and many more are confused, find it confounding how if after 4yrs with the losses reported the price tags remained static at $170M? Doesnt. Make. Any. Sense. Impossible. Based on what we know, the price should be by now around $240M & counting. Deduct the COG's $25M, were at $215M & change. Add the $20M sitting there untouched, $195M. And thats being generous, conservative. We just dont know, likely never will. NHL's not obligated to tell, can & usually do make up whatever story they'd like to sell. One of lifes mysteries... how do they get the Caramel in a Caramel Bar?
