The team in itself makes a profit. Add that Kroenke owns the arena and there are probably revenue that's related to the arena and not the hockey team during hockey events and I don't think money is an issue.

I think the insular/nepotistic character of Avs is the problem. They do things their way and have very seemingly very little interest in what happens in the rest of the league. The idea that they might be grooming Laxcoix Jr for a prominent role makes me cringe.

Much like Murray/King in Calgary, Katz/Lowe in Edmonton, Leonsis/McPhee in Washington and Dolan/Sather in New York, I don't think it's healthy when owner and president/GM are too close.

Damn, I went OT again. Sorry.
