A fairly critical article on Roustan from the Star:
In hockey parlance, Roustan comes across as both the smooth-skating centre and the designated tough guy. He has scored some goals — like becoming the chairman of Bauer Performance Sports and building outdoor rinks for the Montreal Canadiens — but has piled up plenty of penalties too — in the form of lawsuits, bitter former business partners, questionable claims and a U.S. civil court ruling of statutory fraud in a rink deal.
Through it all, Roustan sells himself as a guy with connections, who knows his way around hockey front offices and just loves the smell of Zamboni fumes. A player with pull and passion, eyeing the big score.
His sights are squarely on Markham, where council has approved a financial framework for the proposed deal in which the city would borrow the money for the 20,000-seat arena.
