Phoenix team has hemorrhaged money, I don't see how anybody getting involved will turn a profit.
There are a lot of models on how to select an investment (NPV, IRR, Payback, --and about 4 others). I'm sure they got the math nerds on it.

If the team stays, -- I'm not sure what the angle is, but GS will be getting paid to manage whatever is there.
I'm just throwing names out there, we have a spot in our top 6 unless we plan on giving one of Couturier/Read 2nd line minutes. You act like Lecavalier is a sure thing, but what's next when you don't get him. Are we ok going into next season with an offense of;
Mueller can play C and RW is good on the PP and the shootout and would come cheap. Everyone cries about Couturier never having any wingers but is ok going into next season with Gagne and a rookie as his wingers except this time not on our 4th line but our 3rd.
