from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,
Asked what he had learned after just about 10 years as an NHL owner, Leonsis said:
“You know, I’ve always worked in public companies, but here’s a private company (in the Capitals).
“So I said, ‘OK, we don’t have shareholders like Wall Street. We have stakeholders – our fans.’ And you always hear businessmen being criticized for not taking the long-term view; that they have to meet the next 90 day’s quarterly results. So they view things for the short term, at the detriment of the long term of the company.
