You don’t want that. He does not want to share the arena. He would probably move the team
I doubt Gaglardi sells the team, he's been trying to get a one since 2004 when he tried to own part of the Canucks. He's a smart businessman, he will find a way to manage.
Besides, I doubt he is going to lose much, if anything, once the government gets involved with these big corporations/companies. Airlines, hotels, etc, will all get big bailouts.
Debt will probably be cheap in a potential recession; I think the Stars might be very leveraged up in the not too distant future. I believe Gagliardi will do everything in his power to keep the team, but they might be forced to behave a lot more like a small market team over the next few years.
Nice article on Johns today in the Athletic. It seems to me that he may benefit from even more time off to recover, despite how he looked in his comeback.
Saw an article on hockey revenues. Stars are about mid pack, but what struck me was total per game revenue for them was about $4M. $1.1 was ticket sales, but about $1.4 was F and B. Yes, prices are high, but its hard to think the average fan spends more on hot dogs than the seats.
Of course, its probably not the average fan driving up the FB revenues, its the sky boxes. Not sure where the other revenues come from, but suspect its TV and radio rights, maybe parking, etc. And Platinum levels don't technically belong to them, but they must get some cuts somehow.
