EDITOR'S NOTE: Promoting this to the front page and adding my responses to the first comment. I thought these questions were important and are issues that I think are being mis-reported on by the MSM....
There are two things that have been plaguing my brain since this whole debacle decided to happen again:
- The NHL is asking Glendale for (an estimated) $20-25 million to cover their losses
- Ice Edge (reportedly) will only agree to terms with Glendale if the city agrees to cover all (future?) losses.
Can Glendale really handle all of this?
I need you guys to help explain some things to me so I can keep my sanity. Does Glendale have the money to pay back the NHL? Will the taxpayers have to deal with it? If Ice Edge claims to be such avid hockey fans than why are they only interested in purchasing the team on the grounds that it helps their business? Why exactly did Reinsdorf back out? What are the deadlines that the NHL has before they decide to relocate?
Oh and... UUUUGGGHHHH!
