@SBJSBD (Sports Business Journal/Sports Business Daily) is just generally being a pain by not putting this together, but over a series of tweets:

Quote:
"It's very critical over the next few years that sports franchises are well-managed." - Lightning owner Jeff Vinik at #sbjwcs
Quote:
Jeff Vinik: "It's a very special bond that you have to form between 20,000 fans that you cannot get at home." #sbjwcs
Quote:
Vinik: "One of the reasons I bought an NHL team is that we have a hard cap and the Lightning can compete with the Maple Leafs." #sbjwcs
Quote:
Jeff Vinik on living in TB: "A critical part of building the Lightning brand is being part of the community." #sbjwcs
Quote:
Asked if owning a team is fun, Jeff Lightning owner Jeff Vinik said, "It's the best thing I've ever done."
there's also a RT by @ChrisBottaNHL, but I can't find it SBJ's timeline.
Quote:
RT @SBJSBD Lightning owner Jeff Vinik: "When I bought the team, I was aware of all of the real estate opportunities around the arena."
