News 1130 Sports post this via their Twitter a few minutes ago:
Vancouver Canucks up for sale?
Of course. Makes perfect sense. After all, when you own a magical little money printing press like the Canucks, of course you’ll get bored of all that profiteering eventually and want to hand them over to someone else. Oy.
The Canucks latest public valuation (via Forbes in November, 2010) was $192 million, while bringing in $80 million in annual revenues. And that was calculated before the profits piled up from this year’s long Stanley Cup Playoff run.
Given how hard the Aquilinis fought to get the Canucks only a few short years ago, I’d be dead shocked if they let them go anytime soon.
Update: Several people on Twitter tell me that News1130’s account was hacked. Which is a good thing, I guess… better than believing they would deliberately post such idiocy. (Leaving the post up, though. Now that it’s in the air, someone else is bound to run with this rumour again this week…!)
