Trust me. You do NOT want a bankruptcy on your hands unless you want them to be called the Hamilton/Ontario Lightning.

I feel bad for you guys. After what Jerry Moyes did to the Coyotes I thought we had it bad but with the goat rodeo that's going on with the Lightning I think you guys might be worse off than we are.

Got my fingers crossed for you...

From what I am hearing is that it is more about money that Oren and Barrie dont have to be able to own the team. They have a certain amount of time to be able to get the money they need or the team will go back to the owners before Koules and Barrie. You heard it here first.

What the ****?!!!

So that blackberry dude can't own an NHL franchise but the NHL let the clowns who run ours take over?!!

This is absolutely crazy...if what that article said is true, I hope Oren Koules is thrown from the franchise asap...Vinny should not be going anywhere, thats my bottom line.

Wow, this and Ramo leaves for the KHL.

If the owners can't afford him to stay they need to get the heck out of this city and stop tormenting the Lightning fans that still remain faithful through this entire mess.

These guys epitomize clowns and all the back-stories now come straight from the woodwork. I trusted Oren before, now I don't know who to trust. Barrie still is one of the most pompous men I've ever seen and Oren is ready to pinch money he just threw at the fan hoping it stick last year in order to save up for Saw XVI.

Do not make fun of the Saw movies! OptimismRestrainer might beat you up.

Seriously, I will NEVER forget the look on Oren's face when Michael asked about the next Saw movie. PRICELESS

It was just funny and awkward. It was at the Q&A last month, or the month before. Michael [OptimismRestrainer] and I were waiting in line to talk to Oren, everyone in line was asking Oren about the possibility of a Vinny trade, draft prospects, etc. When we finally got up to him Michael shook his hand and was like "Nice to meet you. So, when's the next Saw movie coming out?" and Oren just stared at him and gave him this dirty look because he thought Michael was being sarcastic. Michael was like "Seriously, Im a big fan. I own all of them." Oren continued to hesitate but gave a quick answer, glanced at his watch, and turned to walk away. Michael was still calling after him "Thanks! Seriously, big fan!" Then he looked at me and was like "I dont think he took me seriously" and I just burst out laughing. It was great.

I agree with you,is hard for us as fans, I can't even imagine what Vinny is thinking or feeling, it must suck not being able to trust anyone on your team.


I hope for his sake and ours that the clown show can finally come to a freaking end
