If IoC lost, he should still have been willing to at least listen to Plan B and see what it was all about, before then bailing. If Plan B really did suck, I cannot imagine the league would have made him stay.
Something is seriously confusing here, for him to bail at this time. It doesn't figure that he couldn't wait another week to see what happens.
I'm not so sure he could sell the team for a profit. A lot of people feel the Pens are not worth as much as he paid. Maybe he was willing to pay so much because he thought the team was portable. And when he discovered how difficult it would be to move the team, he realized he overpaid.
Now it would be REALLY interesting if he were to come back later, say, after the IoC gets the slots license, and offer to buy the team at a lower price.
