The couple million in buyouts pales in comparison to selling out luxury boxes, to getting high paying advertisers to do just that on the network they own. To the merchandising opportunities. To the regular ticket buyer.
They'd still make money regardless, but in order to charge more every year for all those things you have to increase demand for those things. How do you do that, you sell marketable players. why else do you think we've seen Lindros, Messier, Jagr, Shanahan, Naslund, Gaborik, Richards, Nash here? Because they lose money on them?
The point of this team is not to contend for years upon years, it's to make as much money as possible yearly.
I would say the most marketable team is the one that wins.
