Sale Of The Blues Now Up In the Air

from Jeremy Rutherford of the St, Louis Post-Dispatch,

The NHL-imposed deadline for the sale of the Blues to Matthew Hulsizer is less than 48 hours away and it’s unlikely, but still possible, that a deal will be completed in time according to multiple sources with knowledge of the process.

“It could go either way,” one source said.

Almost two months ago, the league gave Hulsizer until Dec. 31 to finalize the purchase. And despite sources’ claims that a closing had been imminent in recent weeks, nothing has materialized. The hang-up appears to be the ability of Hulsizer and Dave Checketts to provide sufficient equity and perhaps secure the necessary bank financing to guarantee the viability of the ownership group.
