"The list of (bankruptcy or sale) candidates, going in rough order from likely to least likely, includes the Atlanta Thrashers, Nashville Predators, Florida Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning, New York Islanders, New Jersey Devils, Dallas Stars and St. Louis Blues."
W4E say: That's quite a list. Okay, FLA's on everyone's list, which I happen to believe is simply expected from most of the hockey world, even though the club appears publicly stable.
What is surprising are names like the Devils and Blues. Luscious Lou finally got the building he's begged for over the past 18 years in Newark, and St. Louis ownership appears to be nothing if not on the right course in constructing a solid, consistent contender in a terrific hockey market.
Fascinating. Anyone who should be added or subtracted from Shoalts' compilation?
