Well, Sam.... one could argue they are as profitable or more profitable in Nashville or Carolina or Phoenix because Quebec City and Winnipeg and Hartford weren't large enouch urban cities with not enough money and no public funding for a new arena, which were badly needed in ALL those areas. I don't think Winnipeg can support a team anymore... and I'm FROM Manitoba... there just isn't enough people with enough money to go there and pay $80/game, 41 nights a year, to see professional hockey.
