It was a combination of an aging building not owned by the team, a relatively weak economy, a weak dollar, and no local people stepping up to buy the team. All of those things are now a non-issue in today's NHL and in the country. Also, I'm glad that Lundqvist wasn't hurt on that Antropov slap shot.
