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.

i read last night that there is another investor willing to help out with the bills in Phoenix.
