NHL Teams Currently For Sale

I assumed this was the best place to post this thread. If not, by all means have it moved. I also searched for this topic, but none of the results were current.

What I am looking for is a list of NHL teams CURRENTLY for sale. For example, the Phoenix Coyotes are an obvious one. I believe the Montreal Canadiens are also up for sale. I would not count the Tampa Bay situation, as it is likely that either Barrie or Koules will retain ownership.

Are there any other teams?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can provide insight!

What is known of what teams are "for sale" or in the sale process include:
  • Nashville Predators (minor ownership of Del Baggio)
  • Florida Panthers (new ownership group working on financing)
  • Tampa Bay Lightning (owners buying each other out, or....)
  • Phoenix Coyotes (bankruptcy)
  • Montreal Canadiens (Molson family has come forward)

so:

1. For Sale (majority)
  • Phoenix Coyotes
  • Florida Panthers

2. For Sale (pieces)
  • Nashville Predators
  • Tampa Bay Lightning (inter-owner buyout plan set out by bettman)

3. Sold (but not closed)
  • Montreal Canadiens (Molson family buying them)

what about dallas? did hicks close the books on that now?
what happened to the atlanta struggle that was going on last year? fully resolved?

FWIW there are threads on all of the above.


Hicks wants to keep the Stars, sell the MLB Rangers.

Actually, in these cases it's 100% (not just a majority).

There were some whispers last year that Buffalo owner Golisano would consider selling the Sabres, but only to someone who would keep the team in Buffalo. If I recall, Rodier had enquired, which is why Golisano made the point about keeping the team where it was.

And lets not forget the whole Steve Belkin v Atlanta Spirit fiasco in Atlanta. Eventually a court will rule on who has the rights to buy the other out and at what price - although the appeals may last another year or more.

Atlanta - will still be owned by the same "name". Just who is in that organization will change. Currently no plans to sell (outside of the group); it's a package deal: NHL, NBA, arena

Although if the non-Belkin side wins, they will be looking for someone to buy Belkin's share so they can pay him off. They will not be absorbing is 1/3 stake out of their own pockets. So I'd say 1/3 of the Thrashers is up pending the lawsuit determining the worth of the franchise.

BUMP.

So all those sales are completed now ? Except the obvious one, Phoenix Coyotes.

Now we can add ?

St. Louis Blues (Part)
Dallas Stars (Majority)

There was another thread on this topic (from this year), so I'll be locking this one (as it's from 20009).

Current list of "for sale" teams and corresponding discussion threads can be found here: http://hfboards.com/showpost.php?p=2...0&postcount=17

You may start a new thread if you have a topic or question that concerns franchise values as a whole, or the general market conditions for teams, for example. We generally don't like having old threads bumped as many things might have changed so it's better to start afresh.
