It's bleeding money and the other owners are being asked to prop it up for Bettman's sake. They'll only allow that for so long.

Short-term, the league might look bad if some teams went bye-bye, but it would only benefit the game and the other owners in the long-term and when it comes down to $$$ for the owners, that's all that matters in the end.

It's not going to happen.  They did not let Ottawa or Buffalo go when they basically went tits up a few years back, and it has Gretzky pimping for it......saying that, I would like to see about 24 teams in the NHL, Fuck Phoenix.
