Dammit, I wanted him to say "we're creating our OWN Sports network" when asked about ROC TV deal(s).

My man crush on Pegula grows with each spoken word. He'll pull through on a TV network one of these days

The TV question was directed at Pegula, but when Black stepped in and said "I can answer this one" I got so excited. Damn.

Darcy's up now, to a standing ovation
"One Team, One Goal" -> "One Market, One Team"

I like the second one better

Ted Black is a machine. How the hell did Pegula drag this guy up here with him?

Let's get a meme going: I Love Ted.

An added bonus being he is a great down to earth guy as opposed to an asshat arrogant dick.

Imagine how happy all of us are that Pegula is now in charge.

Now, multiply that by 10,000 and you have how happy Darcy is.

Speaking from my own public perception, absolutely agreed. And I guess that's all that counts. He comes across as a composed, intelligent, well-spoken business man who will see that the ultimate goal of Stanley is reached in an efficient manner.

Above all else, he's seemingly ALL about the fans and the fanbase (smart business again). Mentions the fan feedback mailbox nearly every time he's in front of a mic.

Haven't had a chance to check on on the presser, I'm assuming there's been no coaching news, otherwise someone would have mentioned it by now?

Looking forward to it, and we'll be holding you to it.

I wonder how many followed suit and called immediately. I'm curious to see how many tickets get sold in the next few days.

Oops, I lied. Only 19 tickets. Still, a crazy deal for crazy awesome seats. I'd have done the full year if I knew I'd have the time. I bet they sell more season tickets in the next month than what their average attendance base was last year.

Also, the non-tendered RFA center list has some interesting names. I'm thinking Schremp & O'Sullivan.

$10/game x 38 games = $380 for any season ticket

If I had an extra $1900 laying around.....

$10 flat price per game for Season Tickets. I know that is quite a bit higher than when I had my seasons... how does this rank with the prices at center ice? 400/season really isn't that bad unless you're used to the $200 price range.

I don't think it will pack the place with Season Ticket Holders but I think the number will go up. From the sounds of it they will not be running a ton of promos. No ticket will be cheaper than a season ticket price so that's good for all the season ticket holders.
