If you read his statement about Basillie, he says Basillie was not forthcoming in his plans in moving the team and was one of the reasons why he was against Balsille becoming an owner in the NHL.
Only problem I had with him was forcing the trade of Vokoun, then buying a competitor. Timonen & Hartnell were gone as UFAs, regardless of ownership.
It worked out in the end for Nashville, so it's all a bunch to do about nothing right now.
According to Poile and Hartnell, they were talking contract when the edict came down from Leipold, actually.
Timonen was gone though, I'd agree with that.
