I don't understand where the moving thing comes from, it makes absolutely no sense. The situation here is basically a scam against the leaseholder, + a $25M subsidy from Dolan per year, who on earth would actually spend the huge amount of money to buy them out of debt and move them? And why would the leaseholder allow it, because an arena doing 50-75 dates a year does fvck all for them.

Oh, and the Post.

Wendy's is a New Jersey born company. I doubt this guy would move the team if he bought it.


Pretty sure it was founded in Ohio...

Anyways, didn't this guy also try to but the Islanders?

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

Oh sh!t you're right. It's Dave Thomas who was from Jersey. I must have remembered that wrong.

I honestly don't think Bettman would let the Devils leave NJ, as crazy as that sounds.

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

As long as the new ownership maintains it's commitment to New Jersey in general and Newark in particular, I have no problem at all with this. I'd love to see a Wendy's in the Prudential Center as a concessions option. It'd also open the door to more hockey-related Wendy's promotion in general which helps the league in general and would help the Devils assuming that guys like Ilya Kovalchuk would be involved in those promos.

The entire line of thinking that Bettman wants the Devils gone is absurd. I dislike him for other reasons, but this is not even factual or with any merit.

It would be a huge black eye for the league if the Devils went anywhere, especially in this market. Bettman knows that.

I said all along that i believe the Devils need a corporate run ownership for long term financial stability. While you lose some of the "attachment" an owner like VBK has for the team, it is the best thing for them. If you're worried about them being "flipped" down the road, it's a legit concern, but who would have thought VBK would be in this position if everything is to be taken for face value?

Also, it can not be overlooked that the Devils DO play in the NY market. They should never be in danger of moving because of that without even going into the arena/lease.

If I saw Ilya Kovalchuk in a Wendy's commercial I'd go nuts. I'd have to tape it, and leave a backup in a bank deposit box.

Or you could save that money that you would have used on the bank deposit box as well as the physical tape and just look it up any time on youtube.

This would be a very smart move to buy the Devils. Revenue at wendys will go up. As it just did, because I seriously went out and bought a baconator combo meal for dinner.

Y'know the only thing missing from us really competing with the Red Wings is having a fast food chain owner (and yes, I consider Little Ceasars to be a form of fast food).

Well, that Forbes article seems to legitimize the Post's piece and kinda makes it seem like it's just a matter of time. Which, of course, begs the obvious question ... will the logo's J trade in its horns for pigtails?
