Discussion in 'Fugu's Business of Hockey Forum' started by Fugu, Apr 14, 2011.
Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence
1 THROUGH me you pass into the city of woe:
2 Through me you pass into eternal pain:
3 Through me among the people lost for aye.
4 Justice the founder of my fabric mov'd:
5 To rear me was the task of power divine,
6 Supremest wisdom, and primeval love.
7 Before me things create were none, save things
8 Eternal, and eternal I endure.
9 All hope abandon ye who enter here.

Why do I get the feeling that more news will be spilled today... The ball is rolling.
Sportsnet has just gave us more info.
We'll see if more gets leaked.
Dreger's rebuttal to WFP report:
Life support indeed. Get the crash cart. If not, make sure the DNR is signed.
The words of the prophets are written on the HFBoards walls / And tenement halls"
I always think NYC, Michigan, Ohio, places like that when thinking Simon & Garfunkel. Great artists, great titles, but can ye' nay' be coming up with things that are topical to Arizona & the Southwest?. Never mind that your scaring off the yoots' with Paleolithic PopCulture References. We needs da yoot's to grow la familia here at hf or the site dies.... New markets. C'mon. Get with program Mods & Administrators. Its not 1969 anymore when everything & anything in your life was possible... I just thought Id share that rather depressing thought with ya'll. So...
your children well
their fathers health
did slowly go bye
That's not really a leak. It's just reality for even the most "pro-stay in Phoenix" or "pro-move somewhere else" people.
fitting tribute ?
Desert Stalemate: Sources close to businessman Matt Hulsizer say he has done nothing to alter his proposal to buy the Phoenix Coyotes, nor has he changed his intention to sit patiently while the NHL, the City of Glendale and the city's bankers continue to try and solidify bond buyers.
I thought Hulsizer was trying to buy the team. So now he is sitting patiently on the sidelines while everyone else does the heavy lifting to get the money to buy the team. Seems to me that if you were trying to buy the team you would be the one knocking on doors trying to get the bonds sold. Or is Hulsizer nothing more than a figurehead owner for what is ultimately the NHL's team? Someone to own it for the next 5 years while the NHL continues its search for a real owner.
Well I'm thinking they're just prepping everybody for KUMBAYAH around the campfire........
Since the NHL has been able to discuss a deal with TNSE since Jan. 1st and since they basically already agreed to a bona fide offer last year (which, based on Lawless' article, would not have been made if TNSE didn't have BOG approval and relocation approval), I doubt there would be much more to iron out in this transaction now.
IMO, COG paid 25 million to cover the losses for this season, so the NHL did not explore selling the team to relocation interests during the season. However, the Coyotes 2010-2011 season officially ended on Saturday. If the NHL met with TNSE earlier this week, I'm guessing that it wasn't to finalize an offer, but to transfer ownership for next season.
My guess is that Coyotes have already been sold to TNSE.
Call it what you want.
Imitation is not always the most sincere form of flattery.
Ya. One of those fake birch log jobs with a red bulb simulating fire. Thing is, they ran out of extension cord.
I like the simon/garfunkel titles. Next up: "the only living boy in glendale"
Haven't you seen the ad from Scottsdale around here, with the good looking girl, rope a lasso. Heck I clicked on it everyday just to try and keep it around. Alas, she's gone...
MOD: Business board only accepts news links from mainstream media and associated twitter accounts (e.g., Dreger w/TSN); the league and NHL teams; and bloggers cleared as insiders, who often are associated with an MSM outlet as well.
The NHL has been able to discuss a deal with TNSE since last May as per the agreement they signed with the COG for $25 million loss coverage. Jan 1st is the date they could excute a sale to a relocation party. They have been free to discuss any such arangement any time
This has to be the longest lasting thread topic in the history of these boards.
Business board is overpopulated with us geezers. We need to teach the next generation what great music was all about.....Time is awasting.
Make sure you turn up the sound. Or some Sennheiser headsets will do.
If the saga concludes with the team moving to Winnipeg, do all the "TNSE's efforts..." threads join the list?
The Road goes ever on and on
Out from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
Let others follow it who can!
Let them a journey new begin,
But I at last with weary feet
Will turn towards the lighted inn,
My evening-rest and sleep to meet.
Or "Money" would have been just as appropriate!
Maybe...just MAYBE....I can finally get a firm outline for the book.......just MAYBE.....
