Does anyone know how season ticket sales are going?

With the draft and the winter classic, I'm hoping sales are up over last year (despite kovalchuk's departure)

Macramalla (@EricOnSportsLaw) is reporting that Forbes is reporting that the NHL will take over the Devils.  Weird sourcing, but it wouldn't surprise me.

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

ugh. Maybe even Lou jumped the gun with this "change of ownership imminent" Looks like Barroway was going to be the guy

 

this article also claims that non NHL events are down at the Prudential Center. However Prudential Center was just ranked the 8th top grossing arena in the world. How bad could it be in that regard?

I don't trust the Forbes article - they and the NY Post have been pretty consistently incorrect over the course of this thing.  TG has Barroway as still interested - even so, how do trial lawyers have enough money to buy sports franchises?  

 

I wonder who planted the Forbes story, because as someone on Twitter pointed out, seems like the Devils planted the story with TG about Harris and Barroway.

if the NY Post is involved in reporting, I don't trust it. they're as bad as Ecklund when it comes to reporting about us, and half the time it seems they do it to get a rise out of us and try to prove our whole existence was ultimately doomed to failure someday. They delight in making us nuts over whether there's going to be a team or not

Even the Forbes article stated that relocation is off the table.  Devils aren't moving.  NHL will probably just keep the team afloat until one of the groups buys the Devils and then move on.  I do not see this as being another Phoenix and this will be measured in months, maybe a year at most and not the years it took for Phoenix to get somewhat resolved.

I doubt they have the money they just know how to get people together that do have it

 

 

If the NHL takes over this isn't a Phoenix situation its more like an LA Dodgers situation (minus the court stuff)

Peter Angelos says hello.

 

Also, if the Devils' ownership planted that story, they're even worse businessmen than I thought, and they're not listening to their lawyers.  I would imagine that there is a confidentiality agreement in place.

I agree, Forbes has had as many wrong articles about the Devils the past couple years as the Post has. I won't give it any credence until I see it from somewhere else that's more reputable. Forbes isn't the magazine it used to be, it's a step above a blog version of the Post these days.

All I can say is that offseasons for devils fans have become very stressful times.

Devils will apparently be sold within the next few days.

Gary Bettman says the NHL will not take over the Devils, as reports suggest.

Daniel mentioned Angelos but the fact is, Plantiffs Attorneys who are major partners in law firms can make substantial moneys if they win/settle the right case.

 

The BofA case had a $2 Billion settlement. My buddy's firm saw hundreds of millions in fees from that win alone.

Although I was told yesterday that nothing was imminent as far as Devils sale being completed, it now it sounds like it could happen quickly
And for the record, I hope TG is correct and it does happen quickly because I'm sick of this sh!t. Just get it done already.
