Yeah but let's be careful here. Someone said he heard/read something (but it didn't really happen) and then another someone runs with that and uses it as confirmation bias. That's how fake news/fake rumors start.

Not saying BSN guys are perfect, but they never said Heiskanen wasn't the AVS guy just to say he was their guy the day after.

I'm not talking Heiskanen... I'm talking their track record for years.

Any GM spot should be desirable with the possible exception of a team that can't spend beyond the cap floor.

There is so much turnaround in players any executive will be able to set his stamp on a team in a few years.

Look at Avs. Every single player on the team is on a contract signed by Sakic/Roy and Sakic only was hired four years ago.

Some headlines:

"Rychel and Avs might be in talks, how does affect DU?"
"Rychel rumored for front office jobs with Avs, why didn't they consider Montgomery?"
"Troy Terry on how Rychel would do with the Avs."
"Rychel joining the Avs, does this mean Sakic is Montgonery's heir apparent?"

Montgomery snubbed in Avs search for executive

In the column it's Chambers interviewing Montgomery. There's a lengthy paragraph on horses... or hunting or something. It doesn't mention Rychel.

I read Warren's quotes as "they are offering me an AGM job but I only want to leave if it's a GM offer". anyways, I hope he comes over. Sakic blows.






btw is it too early for me to start placing Kerby in our lineup for next season? a Greer - Compher - Rychel third line looks sexy.

I consider them an OK source at best when come to Avs stuff as many of there predictions/statements never seem to come true.
I agree but this didn't come from BSN. They wrote their article after it reached HF.

I know when it comes to big jobs in hockey they may never come around at the perfect time or again but a guy like Dubas or say Fenton know their name has been out there for a while and it's not like they will be directly blamed if anything turns south in their org so they know the jobs will be out there, it's not a strike while the iron is hot thing.

Also... it isn't one Memorial Cup... it is three. People don't understand the dumpster fire that org was when he bought them. They were one season from packing up shop and moving elsewhere.
Does anyone know how much OHL teams/franchises are worth?

I imagine they vary like pro sports teams, but I wonder what the value of that franchise is to a guy like Rychel.

A few million I think. The richest ones would be higher of course. I always told my husband if we win the lotto I'm buying a junior team.

I do a lot of investing, TV - and I'm a bit gray on the word "few".

Seriously though, I've never really thought of this - what minor league hockey teams/franchises are worth.

3M. I can't tell you exactly where I got that figure but I have seen it mentioned. Not sure if that helps lol

Maybe higher than I thought, or at least a larger range. Maybe this helps.

Sorry, I didn't find an answer to how much Windsor is worth, but per this 2009 article the Hunter Bros purchased the London Knights for over $3 million in 2000, & as of 8 years ago could've sold the franchise for just over $11 mil.

That BSN podcast today was pretty weak. Seemed like they just hastily sat down and said "let's discuss what Rychel was quoted saying after the Memorial Cup" and Dater rehashed '96 for awhile just to prove he was there. By the way, anyone remember when he posted on here? Wasn't his username graf007 or something like that?? I wonder if he still lurks...

The Ramparts were sold for ~25m a few years ago. The bigger teams are worth a good chunk. The smaller teams are probably in the single digit millions.

And if the team was hitting rock bottom and this was eleven years ago, we're getting to NHL grinder numbers.

Some of the markets are massive and the CHL team is the biggest team in town. London and Quebec are prime examples.

I guess even with a NHL team the CHL team might do well because of market size. Oil Kings and Hitmen have good attendance if I recall correctly.

Even some hard up franchises have sold for decent money recently. Mississauga was ~8.25m in 2012. It really depends on the market, and maybe even more importantly the arena situation.

Sakic is playing things way too safe with former players that he knows, not wheeling and dealing to bring in winning attitude or hard work ethic. Seems like he is way too conservative.
