I mentioned this before. John Shannon, in an interview, implied that :

i) the NHL is going to try and find an owner by Christmas;
ii) if they can't, JR is waiting in the wings;
iii) JR has agreed to be the fallback guy, in case no one else steps up, but he won't pay anywhere near what the NHL wants. He will run the team and cover its losses for X number of years and the team will cost him next to nothing.

Now, John Shannon has been wrong before. Lots of times. And people have asked why the NHL would give the team to JR when a group in Quebec would buy the team tomorrow for $200M. That I don't know.

However, John Shannon did work for the NHL head office for years and is well connected so...
