Ya absolutely, though reasonably, offer the NHL 5 or 6M a year. We were discussing this ages ago, but really, I have no problem with the league owning this franchise into perpetuity. Could care less quite frankly. Just hire the right people to run it, as they have with Maloney, sub-out the concert & event bookings to people who know what their doing & are aggressive about it. League believes in the market? Fine. Put your money where your mouths at, or is talk just cheap?

There ya go, however, its a matter of degree's & costs isnt it? By any measure, the league & all suitors thus far demanding beyond usury fee's for the pleasure of retaining their team. Blackmail, ransom & extortion is not a business model I'd be contemplating unless my name was Lex Luthor.
