All examples you list are either Leaf's parent company employees or relatives of Leafs' employees, except for Bob Mac who might as well be an employee. Actually he's a fan so there goes his credibility.

Obviously they are going to deny as admitting it would increase Lu value even more.
See, I don't think it's as clandestine as that. I think its more just everyone concerned, from the MLSE and Burke camps, saying "don't worry about it, it happened, move on" then strategic. I don't think philosophy or potential trades can be dismissed entirely from the equation, but past transactions, the team failing to get a whiff of playoffs in his 4 years despite promises, personality...it's a rich tapestry and odd timing. Who knows, maybe everyone concerned just wants to sell papers?
