The Oilers make money. Unlike the other teams that are considered for relocation.
I think the NHL is loyal to places like Phoenix because the city stepped up and funded their arena. It hurts the NHL if they don't go to bat for cities that have paid up. I don't think they seem particularly loyal to places that don't pay like Nassau.
