Texted our mutual friend..she hasnt talked to Alicia today but did recently. Only thing she told me was the first item he discussed with the Devils was the ownership issues. Apparently he is fearful of a Phx situation down the road. He is leery that it will be he and Kovy and no one else. I got the feeling this is the issue he is struggling with not the dollar amount.

Do you really think that the NHL will want to move such a successful franchise ??

No, of course not.

Once the ownership issue gets done it will be clear sailing in a great arena in the NY metro area with a fantasic tv deal.

I don't think we would have lasted in East Rutherford though, especially with the Nets leaving. Who knows

The same Phoenix situation that made the WCF this season?

So if we had heard about the supposed new investors, and had some kind of reassurance, then Zach may have never hit UFA.

I think the Pens are gambling that the can get Suter to help their defence. Otherwise I agree, it makes no sense.

Sounds like it. That annoys me. Vanderbeek should have had his act together.

When we move Lou will have JVB burried under the new arena

The ice will for sure be high class with hucksterish bounces

See the thing is that was the past. None of us have a real clue how bad the situation is financially.

Irony notwithstanding, they have been competitive, which is the point.

Also, Phoenix isnt connected to their arena the way we are.
