Shades of Phoenix: NHL spiking story of Florida Panthers sale?

From The Puck Stops Here, via Kukla's Korner: Alan Cohen was tired of paying for Florida Panthers losses and he decided to get out. He is leaving the team to his major partners in his 2001 purchase (Cliff Viner and Stu Siegel). Probably the deal is not for a significant amount of money. It is Cohen getting out and leaving things to the partners that remain. The partners have little choice but the either buy him out and assume any losses on the team or to give up their ownership and lose any equity they have in the Florida Panthers. These men are both Florida businessmen who probably never had any desire to be more than minority partners in a local ownership group of an NHL team. With the majority partner departing, they are forced to accept a bigger role than they ever wanted in an effort to not "lose their shirt" in this investment. This is remarkably similar to what happened with the Phoenix Coyotes.

"We're going to be there with them, we're going to be crying with them, we're going to be laughing with them. We are the biggest Panthers fans. We're the only crazy ones who would do this." Stu Siegel, who along with Cliff Viner will be purchasing a majority stake in the organization from Alan Cohen. The deal will be made official in a Monday press conference at BankAtlantic Center.
