That last part is rumor and such, but the meeting between Dolgon, Newman, and Ohrablo most certainly did take place.
Now, nothing has been divulged to the public yet either regarding the Crunch's new NHL affiliate. But if you subscribe to reading "tea leaves", nepitism, and the ol' saying
"walks, quacks, looks like a duck, it must be a duck"
then that's where I'm drawing my conclusions from.
What gets announced this Thursday at 2:30 should be the "tell-all" sign.
or... the "cat's" outta the bag, so to speak.
I'm just glad that I'm not the only one who wants to call him 'Bobsled'.
and 'nepitism' isn't quite the right word, and not just because it's speeled wrong. Nepotism has to do with family members getting favorable treatment...or Napoleon or something. Napoleon did make his brother the King of Spain, so maybe.
Something worth remembering is that at the presser where they announced the team name, Ohrablo (I think) said that the Lightning would be playing another exhibition game in Orlando. That'll be awkward if they go with the Kitties.
