I'm by no means a business expert so I don't want to talk like a know-it-all, but could the Canucks not afford to lose the $1.5 million by keeping the team in Peoria. Hell, they're content with spending over 5 on a backup and 4+ on one defenseman who hardly gets into the lineup and one supposed powerforward who is always injured. I can't see how losing a bit of money is stopping them from keeping this new operation where it is for the time being.
It could be that the city of Peoria wants more than just a 1-year deal which I imagine would be a sticking point for the Canucks.
