I know I'm reading tea leaves here but I truly believe Jamison is behind the marketing campaign and i doubt the NHL would organize a large scale marketing campaign if they expected the sale backfire. Also most media outlets reported that Jamison has already acquired the financing to purchase the team including Mike Sunnucks, who several weeks ago reported the financing was not secured after probably reading the BOH. Once he printed his story several reputable media sources called him out for not having any sources close to the Jamison group and he almost immediately printed a new story claiming Jamison had secured the financing. Jamison and LeBlanc were also at several games and scrimmages, which could be a positive sign.
That's what I've noticed too. more advertising than I have ever seen before. It started right around playoffs (when they made the announcement about Jamison) and then this year it's just everywhere - newspaper, TV, and the billboards along the freeways.
It could be just like the lockout - until the last minute comes, people will hold out for a better deal. Then when it comes to 'take it now or say bye-bye' it gets done.
