I had absolute confidence that the NHL was going to thwart Balsillie no matter what, and would use our lease as a reason not so much to keep the team here, but to block it from moving to Hamilton.

Will they still be so cavalier in enforcing the lease when the relocation target is a city the league approves of?
That's the 50 million dollar question - did the league pressure Leipold to favour this new bid because they approve of the possible relocation to KC, even though the offer is less than Balsille's?
