Between that and the bad PR moves the evil one has acted out (Copps deal, Hamilton ticket drive, submitting for relo) , damage control will be difficult if not impossible. I don't think the corporate drive can make up for the potential canceled individual season tickets this will generate.
The only hope is that the season ticket holder is typically more versed in what goes on in hockey, and sees this for what it is, rather than the urge to think "firesale."
