Very true Whileee, that was an oversight on my part. For some reason I was thinking that the CoG would learn from past Bills of Goods from the NHL and not reup for another year of losses on the basis of a specious potential owner.

Haven't heard from Balkin in awhile, maybe he is potential owner #5? Clark Rockefeller? Allen Stanford?
