Tampa Sale Appears to be Ahead of Schedule

From Eduardo A. Encina at the St. Petersburg Times,

After meeting with him Wednesday in New York, Lightning team president Ron Campbell said NHL commissioner Gary Bettman told him the sale of the team appears ahead of schedule.

Campbell attended Wednesday’s game in New Jersey to take in the Devils’ new $375-million arena, the Prudential Center.

Earlier in the day, Campbell met with Bettman at the league offices and received an update on the sale of the team, the St. Pete Times Forum lease and 51/2 acres of adjoining land from Palace Sports & Entertainment to Absolute Hockey Enterprises. Campbell said he still anticipates the deal would be completed by the Dec. 31 deadline.
