but look what the NHL has floated: Reinsdorf and three guys with no money. I'd have to believe that Gallacher, with his legitimate billions of dollars and passion for the sport, would not only be way ahead of the likes of Hulsizer on that Rolodex but would also have been able to get a lease that was to his liking.

I think it'd be rad if he were real but it seems to me that even if he is, his late appearance in this saga is really odd.
