Yeah, Spano and Wang for sure, I'm sure Harold Ballard would have to be on that list. It's been said that he and King Clancy were the inspiration for the two old guys on the Muppets
I went back and couldn't get it to open.Maybe someone else can start a thread with a new link?
I have a feeling it's going to be long thread.
I'm surprised the Milsteins didn't make the list.I'm sure they were the owners , when the team tried auctioning Palffy off to the Rangers.They also tried to use the state of the arena , to get the team out of the lease,saying the scoreboard was in danger of falling and injuring someone.
Is Charles Wang was really "serious" about considering a sumo wrestler to be a goaltender?
I've no idea.
I do have to disagree about the criticism for firing Smith.When you agree to certain conditions BEFORE taking a job , like Smith did , you can't balk at those work conditions.You can't try to change them after getting hired.Don't want to work in a gm by comittee situation? Then do like Lombardi and Tambelini did:say thanks , but no thanks.
