I believe so Whileee. We really dont know how amenable (or not) Weiers & this new Council might be to providing some sort of, shall we say.. conservative (?) Arena Management Fee in order to buy even one more season to see what if anything at all can be worked out with a new set of eyeball's looking over matters. Options seem to be available, the NHL running this thing on a LOC, and even with additional losses over the 13/14 season, they'll absolutely be able to receive full recompense through Relocation, be it Spring 2014 or even 15 when both QC & Seattle will be coming on-line. We here & elsewhere, critics & supporters alike could well be overestimating & assuming much that the NHL's as concerned about it we or as one might think they would or should be. The lack of urgency from all quarters amongst other factors suggests their not. Park it, let it absolutely play out to the nth degree. Modus operandi reactive as opposed to being pro-active with just about everything in their world and has been for decades. Why do anything half assed when whole assed can be so much more satisfying?
