They're having a tough time as it is with that one, though. Balsille's made the same stupid mistake three times, and surely he'll learn soon enough. If he loses out on Phoenix and comes here and says he intends to keep the team in Anaheim or whatever because he believes it to be a good hockey market or whatever, the NHL might finally cave. Once he realizes that it's an incredibly stupid move to shout out his intentions, there's a good chance he finally may get a team. And unless this gets solved soon, we might be the southern team with ownership issues that he targets. **** could get scary pretty quick.

After his previous three attempts to buy an NHL team and move it to Hamilton, I really don't think Balsillie will be allowed to be an owner in the NHL. He could make all kinds of promises to keep the team here, but the BoG will probably never allow it. Why would they believe him now when he's made his desire to move a team north very public? I'd be more worried of an owner from outside of So Cal, at least someone local would be more willing to keep the team here rather than someone from, say, Portland, Kansas City, or Houston.

Just a thought...
It's not his dealings with the SEC that they referenced to his lack of character as much as his dealings with the league. Telling them he wasn't interested in moving the Penguins, his lawyer talking to the city of Nashville to try to damage the Predators, etc. Macleans Magazine has a good article about all that stuff this week in Canada.
