NHL's Ottawa Senators Declare Bankruptcy

NPR's Robert Siegel speaks with Stefan Fatsis, sportswriter for The Wall Street Journal, about the Ottowa Senators. The NHL team has declared bankruptcy, a move that has important implications for the professional hockey and other sports leagues. The mere mention of contraction set the baseball world astir. Hockey, a less-robust professional sport, may face more pronounced turmoil.
