I'm going to have to disagree with you braindead.

Boots has already stated he wants a team in Kansas City. He's linked with AEG to bring a team there and he has told them he will bring a team to Kansas City. Is it any surprise he tried to grab the Penguins and Predators, both who had the ability to be moved? Just like Balsillie.

He's in the same boat as Balsillie, although he tries to play it by the book a little more.

That being said, what makes you think he doesn't try the same tactics to make attendance tank so he can move the team? Sure, we may get 14,000 next year and he has to stay, that doesn't mean he does what he can to make it work here.

If we get Boots, then we have the axe over our head.

I'd rather take my chances with the local group, even if it means we have a lower payroll. At least with a local group they can make inroads in the corporate community, hopefully fixing our corporate support issue. Balsillie, Boots, Leipold could / can never do that.

Our individual fan base has been strong. With a local group we can increase corporate support, making it a much stronger market.
