Should we pull a "Eiltest Canadian who doesn't think We deserve a hockey team" and start contraction threads for the Canadian franchises valued below ours?

I like this little quip the best:

The skinny.
Since the 2004-05 lockout the Kings have failed to qualify for the playoffs and during the past three campaigns—when the team posted a mark of 93 wins and 121 losses—the Kings have barely resembled a professional hockey team. Team owner Philip Anschutz makes his profits from the Staples Center and developing the surrounding real estate.
It also mentions that since being built, the area around Staples has seen 5 BILLION Dollars in development.

You're darn right Anshytz makes his money on the real estate around Staples

Well yeah. He's a business man. It's redundant to point out that he does his best to earn a profit.
