Perhaps his biggest mistake, one source suggested, was that Kelly didn't articulate his plan to help grow league revenues. The league's salary cap is tied directly to revenues.
"If he had a coherent plan, he wouldn't be in this position," the source told SportingNews.com. "At the end of the day, there's no platform. No rallying cry."
Maybe I'm reaching here, but does anyone else see this coming back to Coyotes-Canada franchise situation?
These guys could start pushing to flush US franchises and add Canadian ones for the sake of more revenue. Hargrove knows how to play Canadian retail politics, I could see him whipping up the media and maybe getting the NDP to make noise (hopefully the Liberals will maintain their dignity and won't bite).
