Let's say they have to repay 30M of that, after making Glendale whole to a 6M/yr AMF. Now, they have 126M of debt on the team, and 48M of their own $$ invested. Sell to PKP for 220M, pocket ~45M profit.....

Even more likely, however, is
3) LeBlanc doesn't really care, since he is selling in 5 years, and he only has 1 or 2 or 5M invested, and that is not much for the privilege of playing with the big boys....
So wait a second, you have them not using the NHL line of credit while also losing $50million? It's also a big assumption that the league will let RSE profit from flipping the franchise. They didn't do it for ASG.
