This is the problem. They're not building a real sustainable fanbase. Even if they could manage to keep winning year in and year out (which, let's face it, they'll probably go back to a bottom feeder in coming years), they still face attendance problems. It's great that they win but what's the point if nobody's watching? Let's just hope their good play only increases their sale value so that someone will move them.
Thats what i was getting at. I want new teams to do good but i kinda want Phoenix to fail because I'm afraid the league might try to force them to stay in AZ where no one supports hockey instead of moving it some place where people will. Which would be better for the team and the league.
