They’ll probably get ready to move due to low fan participation and have a wealthy local ex-athlete bail them out in the eleventh hour.

Ugh, I can’t believe I’m getting into this again, but damn, get your facts straight.  You are combining about 10 years there.

Good for the Jackets.  Hopefully they can turn it around.  Definitely would like to see them do well.

Nah. You have a player whose outrageous contract coudn’t be payed and have to get him shares of team stock instead. What a stellar business model.

You wish your owner could be half the man that Mr I is. All the hockey programs, charities, and investments into a city that most entrepreneurs abandoned. He took it upon himself to keep the fans in this city happy and proud of their standing in the hockey world. You know it as Hockeytown.

Jim Nil would make an excellent GM.
I hope he stays in Detroit.
