What else does your favourite NHL team's owner own?
 
I know Francesco Aquilini owns Orca Bay Sports and Entertainment. (Vancouver Canucks and Rogers Arena)

I'm pretty sure he owns 40+ Pizza Hut's as well.

You're full of crap, you just wanted to show off the Cups :laugh:

James Dolan is the CEO of cablevision and the Executive Chairman of Madison Square Garden. He owns the Knicks too. And I think he's in a band or something :huh:

Needless to say the guy is comically rich.

Actually, the Wirtz's just own most of the booze shipping rights in Illinois, but close enough.

Its been Canucks Sports and Entertainment for a couple years now.

And he does own I believe all the Pizza Hut's in BC (I worked for one, and was told that he owned that one, and probably the rest in the province).

As well as a blueberry farm and a bunch of low-income housing and condos in the Lower Mainland.

Also clarify that its not just Francesco, but his brothers Paolo and Roberto are all partners in the franchise, and most likely everything they do.

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins...that's about it for Lemieux.

Ron Burkle, on the other hand, owns (or owned) a bunch of grocery stores and percentages of a ton of different things (lots of clothing lines). He made his initial fortune in grocery stores, but is mostly an investor now.

I know. Obviously they don't 'own' all the booze, because most of it resides in the fridges of those on the Hawk board.

Oscar Acosta 11-15-2012 01:17 PM

Why does this thread make me want to kill myself? I own nothing! :cry:
