Bettman Expects Devils’ Potential Sale Won’t Need His Involvement

From Fire & Ice’s Tom Gulitti:

A report in The Hockey News earlier this month said the commissioner would “focus on the situations in New Jersey and Los Angeles” after the Atlanta/Winnipeg sale and Dallas’ sale were resolved.

“I don’t know who wrote that or why, but no,” Bettman said when I asked him if he had any plans to focus on the Devils’ ownership situation or monitor it more closely.

Although Brick City LLC – headed by Mike Gilfillan and Ray Chambers – is looking to sell its 47 percent share, Bettman said that the potential sale is not impacting team business and he expects it to be resolved without need for him to be involved, “to the best of my knowledge in my constant communications with everybody.”

I just went to the Hockey News trying to find the reference to LA, was unable to find it. Can you please clarify what you are referring to and which article this is linked to in THN?

Thanks

Did a little more research, this quote is from a Ken Campbell quote as follows,

“And rumors that Kings majority owner Philip Anschutz also wants to sell simply won’t go away.”

Here is the link.

Obviously, I was quoting Gulitti’s bit. Whatever he was previously referencing was just that - his reference.

Think Giulette’s talking about THN mag, which isn’t online.

Is there a reason so many franchises are getting bought and sold in 2011? And is that a good thing or a bad thing?
