We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all cities are created equal (although some are more equal than others), that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Franchises."


My name is James Balsil-Lee; Ontario is my home
My name is James Balsil-Lee; Ontario is my home
And my horses turn to glue if I can't deliver
Unto you a hockey franchise through a Phoenix Bankruptcy!


Mr. Bettman, I say you should buy it
To your legal mind and dollars we defer

Is that so? Well, if I'm the one to do it
They'll run their quill pens through it
I'm obnoxious and disliked, you know that, sir

Yes, We know


Is anybody there?
Does anybody care?
