$60 million kicked in by the owners and nearly $40 million by taxpayers to cover losses over the last 5 years. A possible lockout looming, meaning no income at all, and an offer sheet that will cost the team $28 million in 1 calendar year with the stroke of a pen. I know the one owner is apparently one of Canada's wealthiest, but he didn't get there by throwing money down the drain.
That article convinced me...they aren't matching. Only question now is will it be picks or a trade package.
