This deserves its own thread... and important discussion of how the new owner see and will run things...
In his first public remarks as one of the co-owners of the Devils, billionaire Joshua Harris made sure he began by mentioning he has some New Jersey roots.
Harris said his excitement over becoming one of the new owners of the team was “borne from returning to Newark, a city where my grandparents called home and a city just 20 minutes away from my father’s alma mater, Caldwell High School.”
Co-owner David Blitzer, a Scott Plains native who is the senior executive director of Blackstone Group in New York, went a step further and proclaimed himself a “Jersey guy.”
“I was born and raised in New Jersey,” Blitzer said. “My parents were born and raised in New Jersey. My grandparents grew up in New Jersey and my parents still live in the same home that I grew up in my entire life.
“So, I know what it means to be from New Jersey. I know that sense of pride that comes with being from New Jersey and supporting your team. And the passion and support of Devils’ fans is what makes this even more exciting.”
