Here's why the team hasn't moved yet:

Summer 2010, CoG pays 25m$ to stay in Glendale.
Summer 2011, CoG pays 25m$ (or 20m$) to stay in Glendale.
Summer 2012, CoG offers 320m$ to GJ.
Summer 2013, ???, who knows...

As long as Glendale is willing to pay the NHL to stay in Glendale, the NHL will stay in Glendale. Put all other logic aside.
