JB can play the role of bad guy while Bettman can appear to the masses as the innocent commissioner that tried his best to keep the team in Nashville.
How does the city "not deserve a team?"
It had three years of first round exits, and despite that, attendance both fan(not the problem) and the elusive corporate were on the rise. It has not, since before the lockout, trended downward at any point.
But thanks for telling us what we do and don't deserve, oh pious one.
