In Topic: Penguins Sale: Lemieux and Burkle asking for $750 million

Today, 10:07 AM

Leafs already sold for way more than that, but no US team has ever sold for that much and unlikely Pittsburgh would, the market just isn't big enough.  The most recent Forbes valuations I saw had the Wings and Pens valued at close to the same amount ($570M and $565M respectively).  The more valuable US teams were the Rangers (obviously), Chicago, LA, Boston and Philadelphia (this one surprised me)

Not only what the Oilers did after them, but what the Canadiens did before them.

In Topic: Mike Richard's Contract Terminated (Not Bought Out)

Haven't seen his actual contract, but pretty safe bet that there is a morality clause...almost all professional athletes (or public figures) have them.  The question would be how clear it is though.

In Topic: Holtby Asking for $8M

You're probably right, but still too high in my opinion.  Club is starting at $5.1M, so you know it's going to come up quite a bit from there.  Midpoint in two positions would be $6.55...Carey Price money (albeit signed at a different point in time).

Umm...no....didn't add the "her"...there are already 3 women (players) in the HHOF and a 4th to be added later this year.


Edit: also, the NHL doesn't run the HHOF.
