NEW YORK -- The NHL is threatening to kick the owners of the New York Rangers out of the league or force them to sell the team as punishment for accusing league officials of violating antitrust laws.

The NHL filed court papers Wednesday that included a draft letter from commissioner Gary Bettman proposing discipline against Madison Square Garden, L.P. that could lead to suspension or termination of its ownership of the Rangers. The Garden responded by accusing the NHL of using "bullying tactics."

In its court filing, the NHL asked a judge to agree Madison Square Garden breached its contract by challenging league rules.

now if we can find a way to force him to sell the knicks...

Well the NHL has indefinitely suspended one owner:

Granted Samueli's problems are very much different from Dolan but it shows the NHL has now all of the sudden developed an iron fist regarding their owners. I think Dolan should be a little worried now.
