Nope, HECFI which is basically a branch of city hall has ran it for years. Their last financial statement and financial woes just came out though. The idea of the team leaving mid season or even at the end of this season seems highly unlikely.

This past off-season a three year deal between HECFI and the Bulldogs was signed, the signing did come in very late though, it's was widely stated that Andlauer (Bulldogs owner) had travelled to St. John's to talk to those people in case an NHL club forced them out. It's my believe he talked to them about a deal, but as many people here have stated St. John's seems to be very difficult to deal with. My guess is that Hamilton was the best deal available.

When the Laval arena is ready, will Hamilton still be the best deal available to Andlauer?....... that's the question down the road.
