Amen to that, but arguing with someone who says things like "Buffalo is indifferent" and "Do they even know they have teams in Florida" is not worth your time.

Dave Nonis himself ...


The Canucks have made a profit of $45 million the past two years, but to do that ``we've had to fire on all cylinders to make money,'' said Nonis.

It is a fair way of representing revenues when being partners with the players, but is not the one used when being partners with another owner.
