The NY POST is one thing Forbes has credibility. Forbes wouldn't print something that's not true IMO. They fact checked the story they didn't copy the NY POST.

The article said their main source was the Post. Then he claimed other 'sources' that I'm sure are very similar to the 'sources' who claimed financial ruin years ago. Meanwhile, TG, who actually covers the team, has said that the team has several possibilities for minority owners coming in and that the 'missed payment' was non existent.

Those other sources are Craig Carton.

Anybody got the quote from TG about how this is patently untrue and that the team didn't even miss a payment? I'm in the midst of making my rebuttal to the author after he specifically asked me what TG and Bill Daly said was inaccurate about his article.

So is Forbes like bleachreport now?      Half the comments are the author bickering with commenters.

(Note: To demonstrate the difference in perspective, one individual with knowledge of team finances insisted the Devils didn’t miss a payment or have a deadline for a payment delayed/extended at all and that the team is actually ahead in its payments.) - See more at: http://blogs.northjersey.com/blogs/fireice/devils_courting_minority_partners_to_bolster_finances/#sthash.HNCdJofk.dpuf

Thanks. I'm the poster the author asked what part of his article Daly and TG said is untrue, so I posted it.

No financial publication (and I'd argue publication period) has gone from credibility to nonsense faster than Forbes. Forbes was a reliable and well written financial publication a decade ago..Now it is all Top 40, Top 10, Top X slideshows and headline grabbing garbage. It's on it's way to being a Seeking Alpha 2.0. Forbes made the switch from paper to internet by sacrificing it's credibility..Really sad.

I dont read that crap anymore, it's just opinion in print, and that Steve Forbes.....I heard him on CNBC while he filled in for someone in the morning ..all he spewed was his misguided opinion, I really couldn't believe that guy for one second.

That article is a mess.    Like taking the body of one mystery story and then quickly (and sloppily) crafting another one around it.

No, people have very short memories.   Same things happened last year and nothing came of anything.   They've even been consistently adding junk payroll as seasons go along.

 

Same reporting, white knights, awful sources like 4th period making stuff up... and here's JVB still inexplicably owning a sports team without much money of his own.

yeah but he still really missed a payment according to the NHLPA and that's not good. 

 

Let's just hope its really bullsh!t.

Well...that's according to one guy who saw a NHLPA memo but can't produce the memo. It could be true, but it would be nice to see some evidence or sources that put their names to things this time.

yeah of course. I could be total bullsh!t to hurt the Devils image before free agency as usual.

 

But i still find that our fanbase (well on this board anyway) is reacting to anything said about the Devils like an overprotective mom who simply can't face or accept that her child could do something wrong.

You're not very good at knowing which media sources are legitimate, and we are.  Kosman has been wrong about lots and lots of stuff, big and small, to the point where his stories can't be believed.  When TG gets a story, that's when you know it's legitimate.
