In what way is GG right now a very very good owner? I don't get it at all. The guy has profited handsomly from his purchase, and has been using the profits as well as the Bell Center and the franchise itself it to prop up other less profitable assets in his empire.

Now in the midst of the storied 100th year of the franchise, that the marketing dept has been hyping for years, he publicly decides to offer the team to the highest bidder. Before the end of the season, and in the middle of a hard playoff year. Is this the hallmark of a good owner? Now it has to be done as quickly as possible so Gillett can get his money fast, and it may cost us any chance of a positive offseason.

This is people's definition of a very very good owner? Really?
