Very dangerous game to be playing with Bettman. You get Gary mad and he just might take his ball and go home and never come knocking on your doorstep again.

There is a "fair" price to be paid based on market and history of recent sales and I'm sure ( well, not really, but you would hope ) that PKP and Bettman are behaving like gentlemen and will come to an agreement, if they already haven't, for a team in QC.

Push too hard and it can backfire on both sides.

NHL asks for too much, they risk owning a team that has no home or at least a home that is very expensive to stay in.

PKP pushes for too little, and like I said, Gary might just go away in a tiff and sell the team to someone else.

A fine balance needs to be struck.
