Or it could be to still try and convince the selection committee that they're serious about not having another Ionin pick, but rather are going to come out of the import draft with two impact forwards.

Would be interesting if the Tullio rumor was Rocco buying the Boughner majority share.

I don't know if WR and BB will stick around if the OHL makes it readily apparent that they're not wanted and will never get the host gig because the same committee members will have given it to London twice in 10 years and came out against Windsor twice in three years. Sell the team for a tidy profit and tell Branch to kiss their ass once the ink is dried on the final sale contract. Buying the team for near $6M, selling it for around $10M - value will never be as high, as NCAA Hockey is quickly gaining on OHL as a pipeline to the NHL. Furthermore after dealing with Branch for the last many years, they might realize that he's a clown and they don't want their million dollar investments in the hands of a Bozo who would rather hold back good organizations than prod the crappy ones to get better.
