While the arena issue has been looming its not the be all, end all.. THE REASON NO ONE SIGNS IS BECAUSE OF FRONT OFFICE/OWNERSHIP INCOMPETENCE.. Ehrhoff didn't reject us because of the arena, he rejected us because when the entire league is front loading contracts to attract free agents Charles Wang is BACK LOADING them combine that with the terrible on ice product and the circus style reputation it's really no wonder players pass on us. Winning solves all and this organization hasn't got a clue how to do anything but stockpile draft picks, pick from the trash and sign awful veterans.
