I spoke to a few people in Ottawa this weekend as a result of the tornado. One of the people I spoke to has ties to the legal teams for players and Melnyk. Take this with a grain of salt if you will but I firmly believe what I was told. Some of the interesting things I heard: 1) Investor group(s) have made offers for the team. The word is that Melnyk won't budge from a number right around the $600M mark. Loose quote was "if Vegas is worth that much then why should I sell for less?!?!" 2) It got serious enough and was out in the open enough that EK was indeed trying to stall for new ownership. 3) This one is a shocker, LOL. One of the investors has contacted the NHL regarding Melnyk's mental stability. The impression I got was that they were inquiring as to whether the NHL has grounds to step in and facilitate a change in ownership due to an owner being mentally unfit.
