Anybody see this?

Billionaire investor and hockey enthusiast Nelson Peltz is weighing a plan to buy the $250 million in debt of the troubled New Jersey Devils, a source close to the situation told The Post.

The plan being discussed by Peltz, whose Triarc Companies owns Wendy’s, includes lining up an equity investor to buy the money-losing NHL team should the current team owners fail in their talks with lenders to restructure the debt, according to one person who has spoken with Peltz about the plan in recent weeks.

I guess in a worst case scenario where jvb has to cut his losses, this could work and keep the devils in nj. Interesting to say the least.

It's going to keep us here. At least until the next owner comes along and bails out the Wendy guy. And then another guy after that. Has anyone ever MADE money owning the Devils?

As a start to finish investment, I'm assuming McMullen made some nice coin (too lazy to look up the exact figures at the moment)...but that's what happens when you purchase a franchise in the early 80's and sell it for a premium 20 years later. He probably had more seasons losing money than making it, but overall all I would think he, or his family for that matter, made out just fine.

has anyone seen "the real" Wendy in the commercials? She looks like she had a steady diet of those burgers growing up. Not at all what I expected she looked like.

...and now, just to make them more unhealthy....they butter toast the bun!

anyway, a Where's the Beef chant would be hilarious, but most people wouldn't know what the hell the chant is for :lol:

Why would you expect different? Dave wasn't a fit fellow either.

It's easy to forget not everyone was a child on the 80s. Still, imagine the old lady on the big screen a-la David Putty during the Seinfeld era.

So, if I'm reading this correctly, this means that if all of Vanderbeek's efforts fall through, it's OK because we have a buyer waiting in the wings, right? If so, that's really good news. Right?

Surprised they made a morbidly obese woman the spokes person for a fast food chain.... If you watch any other fast food commercial it's either kids or fit people eating food.... i guess it's at least accurate...

If it gets us Frostys in the arena I'm all for it. If I'm not mistaken the Devils made a profit in 2000 and 2001 and the year Vanderbeek lost the least amount of money was the lockout year.

No, DIG it's very BAD news. It just happens to be a fact of life for us. Always has, always will be. Remember the Nashville mess? Just pray we have a line of investors who want a piece. Otherwise, we lose the team.

Why would a guy step in and buy an arena only to move it's only tenant out of it?

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.
