Basically.

I'm super stoked that Rogers was able to continue "cost-effectively acquire premium content", though.

New Board of Directors

http://www.mlse.com/inside_mlse/board_of_directors.aspx

Lastman is basically Tanenbaums Man on the board.

I suppose Anselmi takes over Peddies job.

Two billionaires (Tanenbaum and Ed Rogers), two CEOs (Cope and Mohamed), the son of a former Mayor of Toronto (Dale Lastman), and a corporate VP (Turcke). Big Wigs-galore, although I guess that would be expected.

Peddie was the President and CEO of MLSE. He wasn't employed by the OTPP and if he had not retired, he likely would have kept his job through the new ownership. Anselmi's been doing Peddie's job in the in-term but MLSE is still searching for a permanent replacement (could be Anselmi but also be someone outside the organization). The only change is that the President will no longer have a seat on the Board of Directors.

Why Squiffy? I TRUSTED YOU.

I'm not sure it will have any effect on the current management staff but let the Kings play their Game of Thrones while us peasants starve for bread.

We all know it's coming lol.. humour may be our best hope at delaying it.

Will echo my fellow learned posters here in suspecting this matters little in terms of the operation of the team. Sure to be some snazzy cross promotion though.

But yeah doesn't feel like a big deal especially heading into a possible lockout.

A lockout buys new MLSE ownership time to evaluate the organizations personnel top to bottom and decide what changes need to be made.

Hopefully they start by extending Burke a couple years.

I am quite sure these two blue-chip corporations had a pretty good idea on things prior to closing this billion dollar plus purchase. The lockout will not buy time, it will only cost them money and lots of it. But that also is not new, a lock-out would have been stress-tested into the purchase price.

These guys didn't form this very unusual partnership, then spend 1.5 billion on a whim Mess. Oh I am sure there will be some changes but nothing that affects the operation of the teams.
