OP: this is not meant at you.
Where's the big outrage and calls for the NHL to move the Sens??
Wait, just because it snows there and its in Canada, the team HAS to be successful, no?
Atlanta, Florida, Tampa, Arizona, etc.. all lose money and people scream for the owner's heads and demand (as fans with NO input) for the teams to be moved to more viable markets. What about the precious Sens? Should they be moved. The article spells it out, they've lost (and continue to lose) Millions per year.
Quick, back up the Uhaul, these Sens should head to Seattle/Portland/Kansas City/wherever. Someone will build them a new stadium and the new fanbase will love them and shower the owners with guaranteed profits!
Step 1: lose money, move franchise.
Step 2: ??
Step 3: PROFIT!
Not sure this is the actual "nuke" but according to this, the Sens are losing $9-10m a year.
