I see what you are saying but the wings were dead. bad team, bad attendance, the team was gone for a few years. In this case, Rochester loses a championship team, not because of any other reason then that the owner feels like it. And the league is saying that's cool, screw the fans, we will just give them a new team to start from scratch. That is messed up. Imagine if the Penguins moved to Vegas, and Pittsburgh was given an expansion team, instead of the Penguins staying put and Vegas getting an expansion team. The NHL would be put o shame, as would the NLL if this league had any credibility with the major sports media. It's the bushiest move ever.
