Do you think Bassilie would sit in a box and leave the GM and the team to do their job, or will he be questioning every move, and want to approve every move.
Be careful what you wish for Mess, you just might get it!
Balsillie also showed his true colours by 1) getting taxpayers to re-do Copps for a free rink, 2) refusing to pay Buffalo and Toronto territorial fees and 3) doing absolutely everything the wrong way THREE TIMES
(with Pittsburgh, with Nashville and with Phoenix) to join a 100 year old business.
Heck he wanted MacLean as an advisor !!! Balsillie would be h ballard the 2nd, a complete circus !!!
