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.
