I do think Snider would get back in the NBA if the place was right. Being a successful NBA market is just as much about location as it is talent in most cases (outside of OKC). Unless you're in a major market or a desirable place to live, you're not going to attract the stars that you need to succeed in the star driven NBA. A lot of people thought Virginia Beach could at least be a decent NBA market because it's a pretty damn good place to live that would attract a good amount of free agents.
Maybe if he had more years left in the tank but he's just sticking to his true love now. He was always criticized for not giving as much attention to the Sixers compared to the Flyers even when the Sixers were doing well. I believe he was very vocal about how he doesn't like the way the NBA is ran compared to the NHL in the past when he owned both teams.
I just think the way the leagues are headed the NHL would be more lucrative at this point just on the CBA's alone.
