So, Don Waddell is done as President, which is fine as he will not be missed.

If players start to do the same, that will be bad for the team. There were rumours of Bogosian on the outs in Atlanta and whether or not that is true, if they foresee a difficult time trading him, they could explore trading him. Being a New Yorker, I would contact the Islanders asking for their 5th overall +. Whatever the "+" is, that is to be determined, but it would have to be a "+" because you are getting a 4th year player who is arguably franchise player.

Atlanta might be able to get another pick to add some D depth, or take a D prospect back for depth, and use the 5th overall to draft Couturier, a big C which they need.

I was very interested to hear the purchase price and only got it today.

110 million + 60 million re-location fee. Bargain?

If you're thinking in terms of an investment, it is not a bargain.

The associated risk with purchasing an NHL team in a small-market makes it a terrible investment. That being said, it seems that the new breed of NHL owners are fans first, owners second. And they are typically billionaires, making the financial losses associated with an NHL team easier to swallow.

1,870 season tickets sold in the 1st 3.5 hrs with only select Moose season ticket holders eligible right now (2000 I believe).

They're not doing too bad

My kid said they should keep the Jets name if only to call Byfuglien "Jumbo Jet".

They could sell it to Balsillie in a couple of years for twice that Wink

Balsillie will NEVER get an NHL team.

He tried to bully his way to buying Phoenix... instead of going the professional route like TNSE did.

Appeared to try to sell it to the media... without, it appeared, to go through Bettman first.

That's a no no.

He will never be accepted as an owner.

That's my two cents worth.

it's especially impressive when you consider that these are ALL multi-year commitments; minimum 3 years, maximum 5

wonder if Ottawa fans are taking notes....I don't think we're at 13K even. It keeps hovering around 11K-12K

Until they improve the on-ice and/or the in-game experience, we won't be selling out
