Well this certainly is good news at least at face value. I can't wait to hear the specifics and to who it is.



I CAN wait.. Having to wait would entail we make it to Game 7. Not having to wait would probably mean we hear this announcement by Monday.. haha..

donald trump...would be my guess.


That's about the only thing that can darken my mood lol. Especially since he'd be the last guy to want a hands off piece of the team. But I'd believe Botta more than the paper itself.

-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

Love all the armchair economists who come out whenever this topic comes up. I'm not judging, I truly do enjoy the speculation and attempts to figure this whole thing out even though the public knows very little about what deals are in place.

None of us know dick about what's really going on behind closed doors.

All I can hope for is that A. The team is going nowhere and B. The financials are so that payroll and free agency/roster is not affected.

Donald Trump has no money, which is why he is forced to do those stupid apprentice shows.
He is a "millionaire" in name only.

The plan is to undermine the role of an independent press while constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch conservative narrative is biased … while at the same time filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by filling the propaganda juggernaut from under the guise of a news organization. And that organization would be called Fox News.

Socialism is no more impractical than capitalism - either in their purest form are ridiculous, unachievable ideals. A healthy society requires healthy doses of both.

"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."

He also owns virtually nothing in the various Trump buildings. He's paid to put his name on it. Good work if you can find it, but it hardly makes you a genius businessman. There's a reason why he threatens all these libel suits against people who point stuff like that out, yet they never seem to go anywhere.

if it's trump, we would have to have gold trimmings, or gold logo. so no bueno.

ontario share holder would certainly make the post salivate for hamilton move, so that's annoying as hell to have to hear.

His Apprentice show also makes more money from sponsors than even American Idol from what I hear. This mostly due to the sh!tload of product placements in each episode.

Also IDK but when I see any building with the name TRUMP on it I immediately think about how that is very 80's.

haha if Trump was an owner, he would make the Devils the only team with an 8th jersey.

If indeed it is indeed an investor or group of investors from Ontario you will def be hearing and reading articles about possible moves to Hamilton.

if trump wanted to buy a hockey team, he would have taken the sabres. the logo is already perfect for his hair.

Doesn't make alot of sense. Especially the part about JVB keeping majority, it would be a tad odd for 1 person to spend so much money on essentially nothing, when you can buy the whole thing out of bankruptcy.


David Einhorn was willing to buy the Mets? :noclue:

Correct me if im wrong, but isnt the whole financial situation the reason we didnt do much last free agency and started dropping cap space (white, rolston, hunter). I know they wanted to get younger, but i thought money had alot to do with it. If their money problems get settled before free agency wouldnt that enable the devils to actually spend some money to resign parise, or try to get suter, or pick up any other player out there?
