Because the powers that be don't think it would be a disaster.

Why is the market questionable?

Won't be an arena for years: expected to be completed for 2015 season, what?

Hansen is planning to be involved with the NHL franchise. More dates means more leverage so that means More revenue from corporate sponsors and TV revenue.
