Time to go

I would just like to say how sad hockey is looking today.

First, everybody complains about how hockey isn't popular enough in the States and how teams like Nashville are dragging the league down.

Then, someone comes along and offers to buy the "wart on the NHL's nose" (as you guys put it) for far above market value and move it to a city where it would be far more popular and make everyone involved happier.

But because the buyer puts his foot in his mouth, the NHL gets its panties in a bunch and tell him that he can't buy the team.

If the NHL wants to complain about the state it’s in, then how about swallowing your pride and letting someone take a team where it will do far more good than it is now.
