2 Toronto Businessmen Intersted in Partially Owning the Devils?

Adding a high revenue team would increase the cap ceiling and floor more than revenue sharing would distribute.

Ah, gotcha. Thanks.

relax dude

You don’t see the irony in talking about the difficulty for people to switch to second team in large market with an original 6 team and generations of loyalty behind it?

I didn't think it needed further explanation either, fwiw :)

Without the Islanders getting a new building in the next few years, they're out of the NY market (I just don't see them moving to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where the capacity for hockey is a little over 15,000). If that happens, then I think the NHL would do everything in their power to keep the Devils here in order to continue to rake in the big TV contract and sponsorship money from having a 2nd team in the NY market.

Based upon the current status of the Devils lease at the Rock, and the TV contract with MSG, as others have already said, it would be prohibitively expensive to move the team in the foreseeable future for any new owner. The team would have to go into bankruptcy, and have it purchased and moved out of that procedure before it could conceivably happen.
