“What he’s done is ridiculous,” Esposito says of Balsillie. “You’ve gotta go through the rules. Buy the team first, then follow their rules. That’s the way it works. That’s what we did in Tampa. They gave us a book and we followed the book.”
“I don’t think Hamilton’s the right place to put a team. Toronto can afford another team, I have no doubt, but not Hamilton. It’s too close to Buffalo, for one thing, and that arena (in Hamilton) needs $200 million of upgrades? Ridiculous. You can’t play there.”
